RICHARDSON, Texas -- Texans Credit Union finished its 2007 fundraising campaign for United Way with a $225,206 donation.
During the one-week campaign, more than 245 employees participated and 33 individuals donated at the Leadership Society level with a minimum $1,000 donation. All employee contributions were matched dollar-for-dollar by the credit union. New to the campaign this year was the opportunity for members to contribute. All member contributions were matched $.50 for each dollar.
"Our employees here at Texans understand the importance of being good stewards in the community," said Texans President/CEO David Addison. "Contributing to United Way--an agency created to help our community and serve the greatest needs of our residents--is a natural choice for Texans, as it is an organization with values similar to our own.
Incentives to encourage employee contributions included cash prizes, gift certificates, an iPhone, a Nintendo Wii, complimentary lunches, jeans days, a costume contest, and a campaign celebration. Raffle tickets were also available for purchase for items such as professional sports tickets and FC Dallas and Frisco RoughRiders suite packages.
Over the past ten years, Texans and its employees have donated almost $800,000 to United Way.
