Financial Center South
In the year ahead, we have so many exciting things to share – not least of which is an innovative and exceptional new Financial Center South that will be opening where our former South Anchorage Branch once stood. We’re also thrilled to finally unveil a mobile branch that is ready to travel statewide for your financial needs. Our membership continues to grow, and we continue to improve and reimagine the ways we serve our fellow Alaskans.
We fundraised over $61,000 last year for various organizations across the state, and we also created internal opportunities for employees to volunteer for a total of 910 hours. Over 25,000 items were donated throughout the year – from hygiene products for women and girls, to food and meal kits for hungry Alaskans, to donations to the Food Bank and much-needed clothing items for emergency shelter residents.
Our legacy and commitment to caring for people and our communities continued in 2020 as we donated $65,000 to various nonprofits and small businesses across the state. We awarded $19,500 to 17 deserving students through the Bill Countryman Scholarship program. The #CU1Foodie Challenge was born to help support small, local, restaurants and food trucks across the state during the shutdowns caused by COVID-19.
As one of the top employers of Alaskans, we strive to enrich our employees’ experiences beyond the scope of training and job performance, to build long-lasting careers and always put people first. However, due to the pandemic, we further pivoted our employee efforts in 2020 by keeping the CU1 team engaged and connected to each other via virtual activities, games and relationship-building.
