- Northern New Mexico’s hometown financial cooperative is donating $5 for new memberships opened in October to the Cancer Foundation for New Mexico
SANTA FE — Del Norte Credit Union (DNCU) is excited to announce an October fundraiser benefiting the Cancer Foundation for New Mexico. The decision to raise funds and awareness began with a reflection on what credit unions are known for—giving back and being helpful community partners. DNCU and other credit unions around the world celebrate International Credit Union (ICU) Day’s 70th anniversary Oct. 18.
DNCU will showcase a platinum logo for the entire month to bring awareness to the Cancer Foundation for New Mexico and to stand behind the credit union movement.
The credit union philosophy of people helping people goes beyond providing the right financial products for the membership.
According to DNC “Our unwavering dedication to improving lives is carried out by every DNCU employee when they go that extra mile,” DNCU CEO/President Chuck Valenti said.“Donating these funds is about supporting our communities during difficult times, like when those friends and neighbors are touched by cancer.”
DNCU is donating $5 for new memberships, new checking accounts, or new loan products that are opened in the month of October. Interested community members can apply and sign online at dncu.org or visit one of the six locations across Northern New Mexico.
“DNCU is committed to investing in Northern New Mexico’s future for generations to come. We see a real need, and hope our employees, members and community coming together to raise funds for the Cancer Foundation for New Mexico will make a lasting impact,” said Kim Currie, VP of Marketing for DNCU.
