So how does "Thumbs Up for Charity!" work?
We invited the community to submit nominations for local organizations to receive recognition and a financial donation up to $10,000! Nominations were accepted at cfcu.org/ThumbsUp until Saturday, April 2nd.
Five finalists were chosen from the nominations received and voting started April 11th. Residents can vote for one of the five nominees once a day until April 29th, so don’t miss this chance to give recognition to the group you think deserves it most!
This year's finalists include:
- Feed the Need: Summer Lunch Program, Novi
- Fire/EMS Members Charity, Atlanta
- Miracle League of Plymouth, Plymouth
- 88.1 The Park- WSDP, P-CCS Schools
- Partnership for the Arts and Humanities, Canton
“Thumbs Up for Charity!” gives residents the chance to be a part of giving back to local nonprofits that have already given so much to the communities where they live, work and play.
“The nonprofit groups in our communities work hard and we are proud to support them throughout the year,” said Community Financial manager of community relations Natalie McLaughlin. “We want to provide the residents of our communities a chance to tell us which groups they think deserve recognition, and ‘Thumbs Up for Charity!’ gives them that opportunity.”
If you would like to nominate a charity for "Thumbs up for Charity!" next year, please make sure that it is a registered 501(c)(3) organization, recognized community support organization, or associated with an accredited educational institution serving the communities within Community Financial's field of membership.
