Built from a strong community of partners and members, we are honored to be able to give back to the community in which we all work and live. We believe in the credit union philosophy of people helping people, and that’s why we are committed to a strong community outreach.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals
We actively fundraise as part of Credit Unions for Kids. Credit Union for Kids is the national non-profit collaboration of credit unions united to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. As a whole, Credit Unions for Kids is one of the top three corporate contributors for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (third to Walmart and Costco), with over $120 million raised. Each year the 170 non-profit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across North America provide state-of-the-art care, cutting edge research and preventative health education, and treat children for every disease and injury imaginable – regardless of their ability to pay.
Throughout the year, The Partnership FCU fundraises through many different events. We are beginning to fundraise for the 2015 Credit Union Cherry Blossom Run, in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
Our four strong partners, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), National Science Foundation (NSF), Fannie Mae, and the United States Secret Service Headquarters (USSS) help us strive for high-performance, exceptional service, growth, and excellence. We embrace their culture and employees, and actively take part in their initiatives. They are our community that we serve; they are our partners that help make us stronger for our membership.
Working with the FDIC’s Career Management Office, Corporate University and WorkLife, we have had the opportunity to participate in numerous events throughout the Fall and Winter. We regularly participate in Corporate Employee Program orientation and recruiting events, as well as other agency new employee orientations.
Working with the National Science Foundation’s Department of Administration, we are afforded the great opportunity to meet the new hires of NSF. Through interactive bi-monthly new hire orientation programs, we get a chance to meet face to face our potential members. In January we met with 16 new hires. In partnership with NSF Career/Life Balance Programs, Division of Human Resource Management (HRM), we were able to provide an article titled “How to Keep Your Financial New Year’s Resolutions” to NSF employees in the January 20th Weekly Wire.
A focus of Fannie Mae’s Community Investment and Engagement (CIE) Office is to promote volunteerism within its employee base and to provide different opportunities throughout the year. The Fannie Mae CIE Office helps us communicate our volunteer and fundraising efforts as well to their employee base. In October, they helped communicate the annual All the Hits for All the Kids Radiothon to their employees. All the Hits DC’s 107.43 airs live all day from the main atrium at Children’s National Medical Center, and helps raise money and awareness for patients and families that need care. Since 2008, the All the Kits for All the Kids Radiothon has raised over $2 million for Children’s National Medical Center.
The Partnership FCU was a proud sponsor of the U.S. Secret Service’s Annual National Police Challenge 50 Kilometer Relay (NPC-50), held on May 16, 2014. The run was on behalf of Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) and Honor Every Responsible Officer’s Eternal Sacrifice (H.E.R.O.E.S.). C.O.P.S. was organized in 1984 to serve the needs of spouses, children, parents, siblings, significant others, and affected co-workers of officers killed in the line of duty. H.E.R.O.E.S. was founded in 1964 by a group of Metropolitan Washington professionals with the singular goal of assisting the widows and children of law enforcement officers who give their lives in the line of duty. To date the NPC-50 has donated over $668,000 to C.O.P.S. and H.E.R.O.E.S.
