CoVantage kicks off annual two-week charitable campaign with 'Giving Tuesday'
space
CoVantage Cares Foundation is kicking of its annual two-week fund-raising campaign tomorrow, which is known nationally as “Giving Tuesday.”

The event will run though Dec. 17. Funds generated will be matched with up to $150,000 in contributions from CoVantage Cares Foundation, a public charity established by CoVantage Credit Union.

“I'm grateful to say our credit union has a history of supporting local non-profit organizations and living our mission of helping those in need,” CoVantage CEO Charlie Zanayed said. “Because our members, staff, and community members have made Giving Tuesday campaigns such a huge success the past three years, we wanted to continue our public fund-raising effort in 2019 with a larger match by the CoVantage Cares Foundation.”

Local non-profit organizations to receive funding from this year's campaign were selected by CoVantage staff and are located throughout the communities served by CoVantage Credit Union. The Antigo headquarters chose the United Way of Langlade County, Elcho selected the local food pantry.

CoVantage Cares Foundation was established as a way to provide financial support to organizations that serve individuals, especially those experiencing significant financial challenge, and organizations that work to enhance quality of life in communities served by CoVantage Credit Union.

“We believe the communities we serve have the potential to raise enough money to match the Foundation's $150,000 grant and as a result we anticipate being able to provide resources that will benefit thousands of local people served by receiving organizations,” Zanayed said. “Please join me by making a Giving Tuesday contribution between Dec. 3 and Dec. 17 at any CoVantage branch. CoVantage members can also make online donations through MyCoVantage.”

Other charities selected to receive funding from the fourth annual Giving Tuesday initiative and their sponsoring CoVantage branches include The Neighbors' Place, Wausau, Weston, Rib Mountain, Rothschild; Midwest Indian Mission, Inc./New Hope Shelter & Transitional Housing, Crandon; National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Northern Lakes, Rhinelander; Operation Bootstrap Inc., Stevens Point; Bridge the Gap, Inc., Shawano; Suamico Fire Department, Suamico;

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of the Fox Cities, Neenah, Menasha, Appleton; Iron Endurance/Crystella Rec. Assoc., Crystal Falls, Mich.; Sons of American Legion Reino Squadron No 21, Iron River, Mich.; and Menominee Opera House, Menominee, Mich.
