Impact is what inspires us

Elan strives to play a role in helping communities thrive through our partnerships with credit unions around the country. To deepen our dedication to these neighborhoods, we launched our charitable giving program - Across the Country. We randomly selected Credit Union partners to identify a charity of their choice. Then donated $12,500 to the designated organization on their behalf.

We encourage you to learn more about our credit union partners and their selected organizations. And, if you feel inspired, get involved. Connect with us on our social channels and check back here for any upcoming volunteer opportunities in your area.

Making a Difference in Our Communities

Supporting classrooms with supplies for success

During a volunteer event at Education Foundation of Palm Beach County, Elan and Gold Coast Federal Credit Union staff surprised the non-profit with an additional $5,000 gift to further their inspiring work. The $17,500 total donation will support the Red Apple Supplies program and will ensure that 53 classrooms are stocked with educational supplies.

The Education Foundation of Palm Beach County supports one of the most important parts of a community: public schools. In 2021 alone, their Red Apple Supplies program distributed classroom materials to 193,000 students and 12,000 teachers across 186 public schools in the Palm Beach County School District free of charge.

Feeding the community

Elan recently joined credit card partner Sharonview Federal Credit Union to volunteer at Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. Volunteers worked together to fill over 1,100 backpacks with easy to prepare meals and snacks for school-aged children who may not have access to food over the weekends and holidays. The volunteers also packed each backpack with an Elan dart ball for the children. In addition to the initial $12,500 donation, during the event, Elan and Sharonview surprised the food bank with a $5,000 donation on-site to help fund their work to end hunger.

The food bank serves people in 24 counties throughout North Carolina and South Carolina where over 512,000 people live in poverty, including 168,000 children and 50,000 seniors. The $17,500 Across the Country donation will further their mission by providing 117,500 pounds of nonperishable food and fresh produce.
