Arlington Community Federal Credit Union (ACFCU) announced a $10,000 grant to local nonprofit, Rebuilding Together- Arlington, Fairfax, Falls Church (AFF).
The grant was part of a national give back program award from national credit union credit card vendor PSCU to be given to a local nonprofit of Arlington Community FCU’s choice. Rebuilding Together- AFF is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that serves low-income homeowners and nonprofits.
Arlington Community FCU chose Rebuilding Together-AFF for the grant based on the two organizations’ shared vision for housing in the Northern Virginia region. Karen L. Rosales, Arlington Community FCU’s CEO, stated “We are thankful for the work of Rebuilding Together’s staff and volunteers, who make repairs and modifications so homeowners in need can live in safe and healthy homes in our local neighborhoods. This is a critical part of addressing the housing challenge in our region and we are grateful for the opportunity to learn more about housing needs and opportunities in Arlington, Falls Church, and Fairfax through this partnership.”
These funds will contribute to Rebuilding Together-AFF’s general operations and provide unrestricted funding for the organization. “It is a great pleasure to welcome Arlington Community Federal Credit Union as a new partner in our mission of rebuilding homes to restore safety and well-being for our neighbors in need,” said Patti Klein, Executive Director. “It is clear that they share in our commitment and enthusiasm in helping communities improve and thrive through direct action. This generous grant has already made an impact for one longtime Arlingtonian and it will allow us to help other neighbors who are waiting for critical repairs and life-saving fall prevention.”
With Community at the center of their name, the local credit union ensures they are giving back beyond monetary grants. Through financial education programs for schools and nonprofits, long-term partnerships with local organizations, and products that empower community members to reach their financial goals, Arlington Community FCU makes a positive impact on the community every day.
