America’s Credit Union Announces Launch of New Foundation


America’s Credit Union has launched the ACU Foundation, a non-profit, 501c3 organization chartered this year with the mission of enhancing the lives of military members, South Sound, Washington, residents, and their families.

The Foundation’s Board is comprised of local community leaders who share ACU’s values, have a passion for seeing their community grow, and have 20-plus years of combined experience working with non-profits.

The announcement of the Foundation is great news for golfers and sponsors planning to participate in ACU’s Annual Golf Tournament, The Turkey Shoot, on Nov. 1. Throughout the past 18 years the tournament has raised over half a million dollars for Joint Base Lewis-McChord [JBLM] charities, such as Santa’s Castle and the Holiday Assistance Program. The Foundation hopes to increase contributions to the tournament this year with the added benefit of a tax deduction.

“The Foundation is an extension of ACU’s philanthropic culture,” said Chairman Amber Young. “Credit Unions live by the philosophy of ‘People Helping People’ and it’s what our members expect. We’re fortunate that giving back to our community is what we’re most passionate about.”
