Connexus Credit Union announces record-breaking giveback in new Impact Report
WAUSAU, WI (May 3, 2023) — Connexus Credit Union’s philanthropic program, Connexus Cares, has released its 2022 Connexus Cares Impact Report which details the organization’s recording-breaking year of donations and employee volunteerism. In 2022, the organization donated over $3,500,000 and logged 3,000 volunteer hours, the largest annual totals of both monetary and in-person giveback in the credit union’s history.
Connexus Cares continued its mission of “giving with purpose” in 2022 through its strategic support of organizations that provide basic humanitarian needs like food, shelter, and crisis services, as well as those advocating for seniors, veterans, and at-risk youth. The program also launched a new giveback effort in 2022, Voices of the Season, to support employee-nominated non-profits as part of the credit union’s annual Season of Giving holiday campaign.
In addition to monetary donations, Connexus employees set a new annual volunteering record under the organization’s Volunteer Time Off (VTO) program which provides each employee with 16 paid hours to give back during the workday. Collectively, employees volunteered over 3,000 hours of their time at non-profits last year in the communities Connexus serves.
“A commitment to helping is deeply rooted in our culture, embraced by employees and members, and brought to life by our philanthropic program, Connexus Cares,” stated Claire Meney, Senior Vice President of Member Experience and member of the Connexus Cares Advisory Committee. “We were honored to donate over $3.5 million to support the life-changing work of non-profits across the country last year and are already chasing ambitious donation and volunteer goals in 2023.”
