SANTA FE—Del Norte Credit Union (DNCU), northern New Mexico’s hometown financial cooperative, is kicking off a nine-week drive Feb. 5 to switch members from monthly paper statements to eStatements, accessible through mobile and online banking. Via its Have a Heart campaign, DNCU pledges to donate $1 per switch to the American Heart Association (up to $2,500.)
“Not only are eStatements convenient but they also reduce our carbon footprint—saving trees and energy,” DNCU President/CEO Chuck Valenti said. “By linking the campaign to a donation to the American Heart Association, we make this even more of a good thing—and we think members will be proud of DNCU’s commitment to helping an important non profit that aims to build healthier lives.”
“The American Heart Association is excited to partner with Del Norte Credit Union on this campaign,” said Suzanne Lawson, senior director for the American Heart Association in New Mexico. “It’s wonderful to have corporate partners like DNCU who are dedicated to building healthier communities here in New Mexico, and who are helping the AHA save lives here every day!”
DNCU’s eStatements are posted to its members online accounts every first day of the month. The Have a Heart drive aims to switch at least 1,500 members to eStatement conversion and anticipates quite a bit more. As an added bonus, each member who converts will also be eligible for a drawing for two $500 DNCU Visa gift cards, being held at the completion of the drive in mid April.
