Travis Credit Union selects community organizations to receive $1M towards local COVID-19 efforts

TCU will match up to an additional $4M for donations made to the TCU Foundation

VACAVILLE —Travis Credit Union has launched its $1 million philanthropic initiative, which was disbursed to local organizations working to provide COVID-19-related relief to nonprofits primarily focused on services in the areas of education, youths/family, food banks and small-business support.

These nearly 100 nonprofits in the counties of Yolo, Napa, Solano, Contra Costa and Merced were notified via personal phone calls, including several from Barry Nelson, president and CEO of TCU.

365体育投注In determining the donation amount allocated for each agency, TCU considered the organization’s total size, scope of service, statement of immediate needs, as well as all facets of support being offered to local individuals and families impacted by COVID-19.

The $1 million in donations represents TCU’s commitment to serve as a financial institution that truly cares about the community’s financial needs and well-being. In addition, TCU intends to match up to $4 million given to the TCU Foundation from other organizations, corporations and individuals.

The Yolo County Health and Human Services Agency was one of the local organizations selected to receive a donation from Travis Credit Union. Service Centers Branch Director Nolan Sullivan received a notification call on Friday afternoon.

“Wow, what a call to great call to get on a Friday afternoon!” Sullivan said. “We’ve just been working so hard around the clock. It’s so amazing to have business partners like Travis Credit Union that help us do this work robustly, and make sure we’re supported while we’re supporting others.”

By partnering with the food bank, the county has been delivering weekly boxes of food to approximately 5,000 people locally during the COVID-19 crisis.
