Thirty-seven consecutive years of 100% United Way participation.
This year, the United Way of Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington had a goal of $3,451,000 and were able to surpass that with a total raised of $3,702,100. This money will go to help fund local charities and assist about 70,000 people in the local community.
The Credit Union business model focuses on maximizing benefit to the member and the community over profit. Members all participate in profit sharing annually. “Our business model attracts, encourages and rewards people who care about the community they live in and how to better it. Many of our staff members have been with us for a number of years and have become mentors,” said Maryann Halladay, Deputy CEO. “The younger staff members bring energy and new ideas which we appreciate and encourage.”
