On Friday, April 4 Del-One Federal Credit Union hosted their Annual Members Appreciation Day offering fun activities and an opportunity for members to save with new loan and certificate options. Celebrating current members and encouraging new members to join, the event included free document shredding, grab for cash promotions, refreshments and games.
A not-for-profit organization, Del-One Federal Credit Union serves their members in a unique fashion. Income earned above the cost of operations may be returned to the members in the form of dividends, low interest rates on money borrowed, or invested in additional products or services.
“Since we are a member-owned and a not-for-profit organization we can offer lower interest rates and work with our members on an individual level,” stated Amy Resh, Director of Marketing at Del-One.
In addition to being a unique business for their members, Del-One also is unique in the way they reach out to the communities in which they serve. The Del-One Foundation is a non-profit corporation that was formed to raise funds for charitable purposes throughout Delaware. The Foundation funds and sponsors various charities each year.
For 2014, the Del-One Foundation is supporting and participating in events for Delaware SPCA, Down Syndrome Association of Delaware, Kay’s Kamp, Juvenile Diabetes Association of Delaware, The Krysti Bingham Cerebral Palsy Foundation , and The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. In 2013 the Del-One Foundation supported various charities as over $26,000 was donated, and staff, volunteers, friends, and family participated in several fundraising events throughout the year.
“Through this program we are bringing awareness to our members and our community as a whole,” commented Resh. “The community is our foundation and we know that any help to our community will help our members.”
On October 8 the Del-One Foundation will host their 3rd Annual Charity Golf Tournament to support the several organization they support throughout the year. The event will be held at Jonathan’s Landing Golf Course in Magnolia.
