Everence Federal Credit Union awards grants

Everence Federal Credit Union donated $14,000 from its Rebate for Missions™ program to global agencies MEDA and Mennonite World Conference ($7,000 to each organization). Everence members voted online to choose this year’s recipients.

MEDA (Mennonite Economic Development Associates) is an international development association whose efforts include partnering with the poor to start or grow businesses in developing regions around the world.

Mennonite World Conference is a communion of Anabaptist-related churches linked in a worldwide community of faith. It encourages member churches to work together and helps foster relationships with other international Christian communities.

When people use a Visa credit card from Everence Federal Credit Union, they also help people in need. The credit union tithes to church and mission work 10 percent of the income generated from merchants through the use of Visa cards. In addition to the amount awarded to the global organizations, a portion is donated to local community charities through the credit union’s branch offices.

Since the Rebate for Missions™ program began in 1995, nearly $363,000 has been awarded to churches, missions and relief organizations locally and around the world.

Everence Federal Credit Union is a full-service cooperative chartered to serve members of the Anabaptist community throughout the United States. With its once-a-member, always-a-member policy, the credit union provides financial services to members throughout the world.
