RCU Exceeds United Way Campaign Goal

Santa Rosa, Calif. – Redwood Credit Union (RCU) completed its 2016 United Way workplace giving campaign, raising a total of $105,560 to support United Way of the Wine Country. They exceeded this year’s campaign goal of $105,000, as well as last year’s campaign total of $102,866.

The Credit Union offered several unique incentives to encourage employees to contribute, including raffle prizes, casual days, smoothie parties, and more.

“Supporting local nonprofit programs is a vital part of RCU’s culture, and our employees are passionate about giving back to our communities,” says Meg Cadiz, assistant vice president of community programs. “The annual workplace giving campaign allows employees the flexibility of designating their contribution to a specific nonprofit of their choice, or supporting the many great programs our local United Way provides, such as Schools of Hope tutoring and the 2-1-1 resource help line.”

An active supporter of United Way for nearly 20 years, RCU has raised over $1M for the organization to date. In addition to United Way, RCU supports a wide variety of nonprofits and community efforts throughout the year, including local volunteer centers, and the Sonoma, Marin, and Mendocino County Human Races.
