Help support economic justice

Alternatives Impact is the bridge that connects funders and community members to the good work of our Community Development Credit Union, Alternatives Federal Credit Union. We raise funds to support economic justice work and rely on our expert team of Community Program practitioners to serve everyone, especially those among us that have not been served by mainstream financial institutions.

We're looking forward to a busy summer here at Impact. We will be deploying ambassadors and a new outreach person to bring word of our mission to where it's needed most, looking at local trends to assess priorities. We are implementing a more evidence-based approach to evaluation.

For years, thrilled clients have offered us happy anecdotes about how we've helped them improve their lives. Now, we are moving beyond stories and satisfaction surveys to new, more rigorous techniques that promise continuous feedback and improvement.

As a Community Development Credit Union, Alternatives cannot and does not operate like a mainstream financial institution. We rely on dollars donated to Alternatives Impact to expand our capacity in much-needed areas and to better serve our community.

For more information about how you or your business can support Alternatives Impact, contact Liz Hudson, Development Director at lhudson@alternatives.org or Rebekah Scott, Program and Development Assistant at rscott@alternatives.org, or call (607) 216-3426.
