Reaching More With Fewer Resources: Guest Opinion
United Teletech Financial Federal Credit Union has traditionally placed great emphasis on the role of supporting community good works as another way to extend our brand of “Helping People Prosper.” It provides the credit union with a means of spreading the word about the good we do and uniting others in the cause to help improve our communities.
As a small institution, the reality is that we do not have with the budgets often found at large public companies. Yet, we seek to have similar impact on the lives of those we help. This reality has caused us to be creative in our approach to providing charitable support. For example, when we seek out community partners, we have found that smaller community nonprofits give us greater access to help those in need. Further, the good we do seems to have greater impact than by supporting only the more recognizable national charities. Our dollars goes further at these smaller charities.
