In­no­va­tion Credit Union rec­og­nized as Car­ing Com­pany by Imag­ine Canada

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Swift Current - CON­TRIB­UTED

In­no­va­tion Credit Union is thrilled to an­nounce it has been rec­og­nized as a Car­ing Com­pany by Imag­ine Canada. It's the only Saskatchew­an credit union to earn this des­ig­na­tion.

“We are in­cred­i­bly hon­ored and hum­bled to re­ceive this ac­knowl­edge­ment,” says In­no­va­tion CEO Dan John­son. “Our board, man­age­ment and staff take great pride in re­defin­ing bank­ing by help­ing Cana­di­ans sim­plify their lives and reach their fi­nan­cial goals by rein­vest­ing prof­its into our mem­bers, our com­mu­ni­ties, and our peo­ple.” John­son con­tin­ues, adding, “That’s some­thing we are proud to call Re­spon­si­ble Bank­ing.”

The des­ig­na­tion is given to com­pa­nies who lead by ex­am­ple and set the stan­dard for cor­po­rate giv­ing in Canada. Car­ing Com­pa­nies con­trib­ute a min­i­mum of 1% of their pre-tax profit to ini­tia­tives that sup­port the com­mu­ni­ties where their em­ploy­ees work and live. In 2017, In­no­va­tion Credit Union con­trib­uted over 2% of our pre-tax prof­its to ac­tiv­i­ties that sup­port our lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.

This honor high­lights In­no­va­tion’s com­mit­ment to var­i­ous com­mu­nity pro­grams that truly make a dif­fer­ence, such as:

Bat­tle­fords Boys & Girls Club – In­no­va­tion Credit Union Grub Club

It also rec­og­nizes the im­por­tance of their schol­ar­ship pro­gram and com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment projects in­clud­ing:
