IC’s Great Holiday
GiveBack

We’re celebrating the season of giving in a big way

Winter holidays are when our community comes together and celebrates the commitment we have to each other. So this year we’ve let you – members and IC team members – choose which charities most deserve our help. We’ve raffled off the chance to nominate your favorite non-profits to receive more than $22,000 in donations from IC. To see who our winners nominated and why, check out the interviews attached to each charity logo below

Which charities did our 10 winning members select?

Nowhere is the ethic of community solidarity clearer than in the charities selected by our members this year. Every single organization that received $1,000 donations is a true local organization, no massive corporate organizations among them. From community food pantries to public broadcasting, each winning non-profit nominated by our members addresses multiple needs in their respective communities and illustrates the importance of taking care of each other at the most fundamental level.

To learn more about these organizations and why they were chosen, hover over the tiles below for interviews with the members who nominated them.

Our commitment

We at IC Federal Credit Union strongly believe that a credit union – or any business for that matter – is only as strong as the communities it serves. Since our inception in 1928 as a member-owned non-profit institution, we’ve focused on offering services that provide a positive impact to both our members and their neighborhoods. And throughout the year we’re deeply involved with a wide array of charitable organizations and nonprofits throughout Massachusetts, whether through outreach, volunteering, or corporate giving.

This year’s Great Holiday GiveBack is an opportunity for us to shine the spotlight on a number of these organizations that are close to our members’ and employees’ hearts, and share with you the reasons why.
