America First initiated the Community Assistance Program (CAP) in 1989. The purpose is to enhance our credit union philosophy by raising money to help the homeless and less fortunate in our communities.
Collection boxes are available for cash donations at each America First location, or you can print a donation slip and return it to us by mail. Through these collection boxes, members can participate by offering cash contributions or direct deposits.
Donations can also be given online by submitting your request through the Online Banking messaging system. Tell us the amount you would like to donate, where you would like the funds withdrawn (i.e. savings, checking etc.), and we will transfer the funds for you.
Some organizations the CAP works with include the Ogden Rescue Mission, St. Anne's Shelter, Catholic Community Services, the Cathedral of the Madeleine in Salt Lake City, Christmas Box International, the Assistance League of Salt Lake City, the SHARE food bank in Ogden, and Safe Nest in Las Vegas, NV.
Quarterly disbursements are made organizations that provide job assistance, training, housing, meals, and medical services to those in need. A statement is sent to our members yearly to keep them informed about the Community Assistance Program and to encourage their contributions.
When donations are made to the Community Assistance Program, members can be assured that every penny is dedicated to the disadvantaged in our communities. Nothing is held back or used for administrative or other purposes.
For more information about the CAP, please call Keicha Christiansen 801-827-8606.
