Executives from Golden 1 Credit Union and Wind Youth Services, a service provider focusing on runaway, homeless and street youth in Sacramento County, celebrate the upcoming opening of a new Wind Youth Center with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Sept. 24 in Sacramento, Calif. In 2017, Golden 1 pledged $1 million over three years to fund the development of the center.

Golden 1 Credit Union abides by a “stronger together” approach that extends to our members throughout California. We take pride in our ongoing effort to become integral community partners. These values are woven into Golden 1’s vision statement: “A dynamic and trusted leader committed to enhancing the financial well-being of Californians and their diverse communities.” The first step in this process is identifying opportunities to build and grow programs that make a meaningful impact to people and organizations.

In 2012, Golden 1 launched a formal program to increase local engagement, understanding that an ongoing effort is necessary to meet year-round needs. This program originated with the formation of our Corporate Giving Program and an annual college scholarship program. In six short years, it has grown to consist of annual giving efforts plus larger, strategic initiatives aligned with Golden 1’s vision to give back to local organizations that make a positive impact on the people we serve. Through these efforts, Golden 1 has provided nearly $7 million in community contributions across California.
