The WFCU Credit Union has handed out $20,000 to recipients of their 2019 Community Donations Fund, a fund dedicated to assisting community organizations in delivering programs and projects across Windsor-Essex County region.

This year a wide range of programs in four specific categories were awarded.  Those were, health and wellness, quality of life, cultural and community, and support and information.

“Supporting our community is an integral part of who we are at WFCU Credit Union,” said Eddie Francis, WFCU Credit Union President & CEO. “It gives us great pleasure to be able to support and recognize organizations within our community that contribute to making our community a better place to live and work.”

The Community Donations Fund is a significant element of WFCU’s overall community engagement program, Inspire. Over the past fifteen years, WFCU has invested over $13 million into the community, $283 thousand of which has been through the Community Donations Funds.
