CoVantage Cares Foundation Pledges $150,000 in Matching Funds 

CoVantage Cares Foundation has announced the kickoff of their annual two-week fundraising campaign. The event will begin Tuesday, December 1, which has become known nationally as “Giving Tuesday,” and will end on December 15. Funds generated will be matched with up to $150,000 in contributions from CoVantage Cares Foundation, a public charity established by CoVantage Credit Union. Local non-profit organizations to receive funding from this year’s campaign were selected by CoVantage staff and are located throughout the communities served by CoVantage Credit Union. 

CoVantage Cares Foundation was established as a way to provide financial support to organizations that serve individuals, especially those experiencing significant financial challenge, and organizations that work to enhance the quality of life in communities served by CoVantage Credit Union. According to CoVantage CEO Charlie Zanayed, “I'm grateful to be able to say our credit union has a history of supporting local non-profit organizations and living our mission of helping those in need. Because our members, staff, and community members have made our Giving Tuesday campaigns such a huge success the past four years, it is our hope that they come together again in 2020 to raise money for the eleven charities that will benefit from the fundraising campaign. I believe the funds raised during this campaign are especially important during today’s challenging times. Please join me by making a Giving Tuesday contribution between December 1 and December 15.”  

To give to the campaign, donors can make an online donation through MyCoVantage (if they are members); mail a check made payable to CoVantage Cares Foundation, PO Box 107, Antigo, WI 54409; or drop off a check or cash to any CoVantage drive-up location. 

Charities selected to receive funding from the fifth annual Giving Tuesday initiative and their sponsoring CoVantage branches include: United Way of Langlade County (Antigo); Children’s Imaginarium (Wausau area); Safe Haven Domestic Abuse & Sexual Assault Support Center (Shawano); Forest County Ties That Bind Us (Crandon); Elcho Community Pavilion (Elcho); YMCA of the Northwoods (Rhinelander); Interfaith Food Pantry of Portage County (Stevens Point): Freedom House Green Bay (Suamico); Boys & Girls Clubs of the Fox Valley (Neenah, Menasha, Appleton); Locker Lunch (Crystal Falls & Iron River); and Henes Park Improvements, City of Menominee, MI (Menominee).
