Three times in the past year, STCU has asked community members, “Who do you love?” Their votes sent credit union donations to seven organizations that help make the Inland Northwest a great place to live.

Now, with 2011 drawing to a close, we put the question to our employees: “Who do YOU love?” We asked them to select recipients for end-of-year contributions in our three areas of giving: education; arts and culture; and community.

Our 466 employees nominated more than 80 organizations. The three receiving the most votes will be surprised this week with $1,500 checks delivered by STCU employees:

  • The Museum of Arts and Culture. Our surprise check presentation is scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday at the MAC, 2316 W. First.
  • Spokane Humane Society. Our surprise check presentation is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at 6607 N. Havana.
  • Eastern Washington University Foundation. Our surprise check presentation is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at 102 Hargreaves Hall on the Cheney campus.

The credit union has previously given a total of $6,000 to seven organizations selected by community members at meetings of Greater Spokane Incorporated, the Coeur d’Alene Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce, and on our Facebook site.

The previous recipients: Second Harvest Food Bank; Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery; Excel of North Idaho; North Idaho Violence Prevention Center; Meals on Wheels; Spokane Valley Partners; and Washington Basset Rescue.
