Initial reactions to the program have been strong with thousands of members responding. Donations will be made to organizations in proportion to the support they receive from members.

The credit union also gave back $2.2 million to members through its Workers GiveBack program, which is now in its final stages. ninth year and having returned more than $25 million to its members.
