All In Credit Union awards more than $100,000 in grants
DALEVILLE, AL (February 12, 2021) —
All In Credit Union is providing much-needed support to deserving organizations following a year that has taken a toll on the resources of non-profit agencies. For the third consecutive year, All In will provide more than $100,000 in grants to organizations that make a positive impact in their communities with a total of $142,698 slated for grant recipients.
Bobby Michael, All In Credit Union President/CEO commented, “When developing this project, one of our objectives was to provide funds to organizations whose dreams exceed their existing capital. Through a rigorous application and review process, the eight organizations selected displayed a compelling case to be chosen as one of our grant recipients.”
All In Board Chairman, Charlie Mingus, explained, “In 2020, our Board of Directors made a commitment to donate more than $100,000 from our Helping Hands Foundation to enhance the lives of others in a way that exemplifies the credit union philosophy of ‘People Helping People.’ This is in addition to the many sponsorships and donations made throughout the year to local schools, sports and charities.”
Lisa Hales, All In Senior Vice President of Member Experience who was instrumental in the creation of the Helping Hands Foundation stated, “There is a culture of giving that permeates this organization. Whether lending support for local events through volunteering or ensuring that children and local nursing home residents receive the items on their Christmas wish list, you will find our employees giving back to the community in ways both large and small. As we like to say, ‘We Give Back’ is more than a hashtag at All In.”
According to Michael, the unusual gift is not out of the ordinary for the $1.8 billion organization with a heartbeat for doing good. “The organizations selected are only a few of the many nonprofits making a lasting difference every day. We are extremely pleased to share our resources in order to enhance the work they do and impact the lives of more people than ever before.”
Organizations chosen to receive one of the grant awards provided by All In Credit Union’s Helping Hands Foundation are:
• Crestview Shelter for the Homeless – Crestview, Fla.
• Crossover Ministry – Opp, Ala.
• Dale County EMS & Rescue Squad – Dale County, Ala.
• Fostering Together Gulf Coast – Mobile and Baldwin Counties, Ala.
• Healing Hoof Steps – Crestview, Fla.
• Pike Regional Child Advocacy – Pike and Coffee Counties, Ala.
• The American Legion – Enterprise, Ala.
• United Way of Southwest Alabama – Mobile, Ala.
Michael concluded, “In addition to the good work these organizations do, their willingness to participate in the grant process demonstrates their ability to serve as good stewards of the money they will be receiving.”
Application requests for the 2021 All In Credit Union grants will be announced in August as part of the Credit Union’s continued commitment to give back to the community through All In’s Helping Hands Foundation, which was established in 2016.
