According to GTE Financial, the credit union contributed more than $636,000 to nonprofits and charities last year, along with more than $51,000 in in-kind donations.

“GTE employees drive these fundraising efforts and donate their time, energy and resources,” the credit union said. “Every year, based on employee suggestions, GTE selects 12 monthly charities to support. In 2015, they supported numerous organizations, including The National MS Society, Junior Achievement, and the American Cancer Society. In addition to these charities, GTE sponsors charitable organizations through corporate partnerships, the GTE Cares program and its Holiday Charities campaigns.”
