Redwood Credit Union receives Golden Bell Award

RCU recognized by Marin Office of Education for partnership with SchoolsRule Marin

SANTA ROSA, CA (June 1, 2016) — Redwood Credit Union (RCU) received a Golden Bell Award from the Marin County Office of Education for its partnership with SchoolsRule Marin. The Golden Bell Award recognizes outstanding teachers, supportive community partners, and exemplary educators and school staff in Marin County.

Every time a Marin resident uses their RCU Rewards Visa credit or debit card, RCU makes a donation to SchoolsRule, a coalition of 20 school foundations that help fund literacy, technology, and arts programs for every public school student in Marin County. Since the program’s inception in 2014, RCU has donated nearly $47,000 to directly support education programs in Marin.

“We’re honored to be recognized for our support of Marin County schools. RCU values community and education, so supporting SchoolsRule is a natural fit for us,” said RCU President & CEO, Brett Martinez. “Our program makes it easy for our Members to participate simply by using their RCU cards, so the partnership is truly about the whole community working together to help students succeed.”
