Ent matches AFFN Grant, donating proceeds to military family programs
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (May 22, 2015) — For the fourth consecutive year, Ent Federal Credit Union has been awarded a grant of $1,500 as part of the 2015 Armed Forces Financial Network (AFFN) Matching Grant Program designed to reward those who support U.S. service members and their families.
Ent matched the AFFN grant to provide $1,500 each to the Friends of Family Support organizations at Peterson and Schriever Air Force bases. Friends of Family Support, a private 501(3)c organization, helps fund a wide variety of services available to military personnel and their families through on-base Airman and Family Readiness Centers. Ent supports activities at these centers during the annual America Saves Week campaign, and staff members teach financial education classes to base personnel throughout the year.
AFFN serves defense credit unions and military banks through a worldwide network of ATMs and merchant/retail locations.
