Alternatives Impact, the 501(c)3 affiliate of Alternatives Federal Credit Union, raises funds to support both community programs and a shared mission: to build wealth and create economic opportunity for underserved people and communities. Previously, these programs were primarily supported by federal and state grants, which have been dwindling or have even disappeared.

To meet the growing demand for these programs in Tompkins County, we actively seek support from individuals, corporate and family foundations, businesses, and government agencies. It is only through these donations that we are able to continue the community work that so many seek for financial empowerment.
