Better World Club: Auto and bicycle roadside assistance
When former Working Assets Mutual Fund President Mitch Rofsky learned that AAA actually lobbies against environmental efforts like higher fuel economy standards and alternative transportation, he founded Better World Club, the nation’s only environmentally-friendly auto club. Better World Club provides carbon offsets for travel, gives discounts to hybrid auto drivers, surcharges gas-guzzlers and dedicates one percent of its gross revenues to environmental cleanup and advocacy. Better World Club also offers an option for bicycle roadside protection and gives family membership status to domestic partners as well as married couples.

The Credit Path
As Alternatives Credit Union has grown and changed, our use of the Credit Path model of financial empowerment has changed as well. Originally developed by Bill Myers as a way of understanding our members' financial situations and incorporating that into our business planning, the Credit Path describes where people are situated at various points along a continuum between poverty and self-sufficiency. Our job, as a community development financial institution, is to help our members move along that continuum by empowering them to make decisions, and offering opportunities, that will move them towards financial self-sufficiency.
