Each year, GVC Credit Union's Governance Committee is responsible for the allocation and disbursement of the annual donations budget; in 2022, this budget was $15,000. As it receives many requests for funding, our Membership Committee relies on the credit union's Donation Policy in order to guide them in the decision making process. In 2022, we supported the following:
