We Share A Common Thread Foundation fundraiser raises over $115,000

LOWELL, MA (May 2, 2023) — Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union held its thirteenth annual We Share A Common Thread Foundation Fundraiser on Wednesday, March 29, at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium. The event raised more than $115,000 for local non-profit organizations. The We Share A Common Thread Foundation was established in 2011, with a mission to support people in the community by assisting with food, shelter, clothing, health, and education.

The Fundraiser saw an impressive turnout of almost 400 Jeanne D’Arc employees, business partners, members, and supporters. Attendees were treated to various activities including raffle baskets, silent auction items, tasting stations from local restaurants, and live music, all while helping those in need.

This was the Foundation’s largest fundraiser, raising over $115,000 that was distributed to 146 non-profits in 24 different cities in the Greater Lowell and Southern New Hampshire areas. To see a list of organizations that will benefit from the We Share A Common Thread Foundation Fundraiser visit

The night would not have been possible without the generous donors and sponsors including our top sponsor, Fiserv, Inc., a global provider of financial service technology.

“Each year I am humbled by the amount of support we receive from our employees, members, partners, and the community,” said Mark S. Cochran, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The fact that after one night we can help hundreds of organizations because of this level of support is amazing.”
