CAP Receives $2,500 Grant

Centra Credit Union has donated $2,500 to the Child Advocacy Program of Chautauqua County. This donation is one of 41 grants of $2,500 each to nonprofits within the communities Centra serves, totaling more than $100,000 in donations throughout the communities where Centra has a presence.

Centra Team Members were asked to nominate the nonprofits they feel passionate about supporting, and one nonprofit was selected for each branch and department within Centra. The Team from the Jamestown branch nominated CAP, an organization that strives to end child abuse.

“Centra Team Members love being able to support the causes they care about through this program, and we are proud to be able to support the communities we serve with these donations,” said Centra Community Involvement Officer Jenni Carr. “We chose to support many local nonprofits, along with a few national organizations like the American Red Cross and American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.”

Selected organizations are currently being notified of the donations with the funds being delivered to the selected non-profits by the end of November.

“These wonderful organizations support a similar mission and serve the local communities where Centra has a presence. Credit Unions were built on the premise of People Helping People, and we are excited to provide support to these causes,” Centra President and CEO Rick Silvers said.
