NAPERVILLE – October 18, 2016 – DuPage Credit Union is participating in Love My Credit Union’s second annual video contest now through December 16, 2016. This national campaign highlights credit unions giving back to their communities by sharing their heartfelt work on videos.
These videos are being shared to showcase the advocacy efforts of credit unions and their members. During each month of the campaign, the credit union which receives the most votes per asset size will win a $5,000 grant – which will be directly donated to the charity of their choice. One lucky Grand Prize winner will also win $15,000 at the end of the contest, along with a $1,000 grant going to the credit union that earns the most votes in its home state.
“We’re excited to be participating once again and are hoping to earn grant money this year for local students in need,” said DuPage Credit Union Vice President of Business Solutions Amy Brandt. “This video contest, gives us an opportunity to assist more students and their families in 2017 by giving them essential supplies to help succeed in school.”
Anyone who votes for a video is also entered into a national drawing to win 1-of-5 $500 Gift Cards and a $500 grant to be given to the charity of their choice – and they can increase their odds by voting every day.
All DuPage Credit Union awards will be donated to the DuPage Regional Office of Education (ROE) to help support DuPage Credit Union’s 2017 We’ve Got Your Back backpack fundraising campaign. To date, DuPage Credit Union has raised more than $40,000, including a total of $14,833 this year, to help the DuPage ROE purchase backpacks and school supplies for local students in need. Each year, the Credit Union holds multiple fundraisers; including its annual Drive, Drop & Donate event to raise money to reach its fundraising goals.
