The Skip-A-Pay program is one way Numerica Credit Union offers a bit of flexibility in loan repayment to their members. Donations provide a big impact in the Spokane community and to area non-profits.
When you use Skip a Pay, you are making your community better.
“You can measure the quality of a community by the way in which we take care of those in need,” said Carla Altepeter, president and CEO. “Numerica is committed to giving back at least 5 percent of our earnings to help support those in need and make our communities better places to live, work and play.”
Numerica focuses on fostering education, supporting women and children, and ending hunger and homelessness. Nonprofit partners who embodied this support presented their financial need to Numerica’s leadership team in a 30-minute presentation.
2016 Skip-A-Pay Program provided major gifts to five community charities
Generation Alive, who engage and empower local youth to make a difference in their community. $30,000 will go to support an endeavor to create a Generation Alive Mobile App that will allow youth, family and school faculty to connect and share stories of service and impact.
HRC Ministries, whose focus is on supporting the needs and healing of human trafficking through their faith-based programming. Their services include housing, treatment for trauma, and medical care. $15,000 was awarded to help cover the cost of a stand-alone Restoration and Education Facility for trafficked women so that they can heal through a year-long support program.
Boys & Girls Club works to enable all young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens. Their request to be the official Game Day partner of EWU Football’s opening game was a way for the credit union to help celebrate the community and help these future leaders grow. Numerica’s support of $15,000 will underwrite the cost of “Born Great,” the organization’s game day on September 9. The day will allow Boys & Girls Club the opportunity to fundraise as well as increase exposure for their programs. In addition, Boys & Girls Club youth members will have the opportunity to interact with players and coaches this summer, exposing them to higher education and the possibilities their future could hold.
Women & Children’s Free Restaurant provides nutritious meals to women and children in need through their free restaurant. They also serve as a resource for 22 other local nonprofits by providing frozen, prepared meals that are assembled and distributed through the kitchen each week. Numerica’s $15,000 donation will support the organization’s upcoming crowdfunding campaign aimed at raising funds to replace the currently nonworking van, which is needed to distribute meals to partner nonprofits.
Community Colleges of Spokane Foundation provides students an opportunity to pursue their dream of a higher education. Numerica believes that this dream should not be cut short because of financial need and is working with the Community Colleges of Spokane Foundation in the creation of the “Numerica Heart of the Community” Scholarship. The initial funds of $20,000 will support two full-year education scholarships, which are based on the student’s commitment to serving the community, as well as fund the Foundation’s Emergency Scholarship, which aids students in times of financial crisis.
Continued community support
Skip-A-Pay helps to provide year round support of local non-profits where all Numerica members work, life, and play. 2016 Skip-A-Pay programs also helped to fund:
- Second Harvest of Tri-Cities Season of Giving Food Drive providing 27,000 meals to our community
- Second Chance Center, a day center in Pasco, Wash. Which offers families and children a daytime shelter while they look for work, housing, and other community resources.
- Youth Arena Enrichment Fund’s premier fundraiser the Winter Ice Gala in Wenatchee, Wash. The fund helps to provide youth groups the opportunity to skate, take classes, or attend shows at the Town Toyota Center who might not otherwise be able to afford to do so.
How does Skip-A-Payment work?
For every loan you skip, there is a $20 fee that goes back to the community. You’re not only getting a little extra spending money for you, you’re helping lend a helping hand for those in need. See all the details and qualifications to skip a loan payment.
