America’s Credit Union (ACU) was awarded the 2013 Armed Forces Financial Network (AFFN) matching grant as part of AFFN’s Military Community Support Program. The combined contribution was donated to the Pointe du Hoc Foundation on JBLM.
The mission of The Pointe du Hoc Foundation was established to construct and sustain a fitting memorial and to provide educational, financial and charitable support for Rangers and their families to honor the relentless courage, fortitude and selfless sacrifice of all who have served and supported the 2nd Ranger Battalion. Please visit the Pointe du Hoc website to learn more: www.pointeduhocfoundation.com.
The donation will be used to help complete the final phase of the memorial that honors the 2nd Battalion Rangers killed in action and training. ACU has been an avid supporter for many years now and is proud to contribute.
Since ACU’s beginning in 1954 they have been an active part of the credit union community. America’s Credit Union has participated in the AFFN Matching Grant Program for the past two consecutive years, and collectively our organizations have contributed $6,000 to our US Service Members and their families through this unique partnership in giving. Ken Leonard, ACU President/CEO, said “Sincere collaboration is the best way to impact both our members and our community.”
