One of the great things about being a credit union, created by the community we serve, is the opportunity to give back. There are a number of different ways we do that, but one of the most popular is through our Feel Good Checking™ product. For every Feel Good Checking account opened, SMCU donates $20 to one of six non-profit community partners. Since the account was launched in February 2008, Feel Good Checking has raised more than $75,000 for these amazing groups.
Now it’s time to spread the good to even more community-focused organizations. We’re looking to add four more groups to the list of potential recipients of Feel Good Checking donations.
Between October 17, and November 7, SMCU will be accepting nominations for organizations* to become new Feel Good Checking partners.

Once the nomination period is over, (midnight on Monday, November 7), SMCU will review the list of organizations and narrow it down to 12 finalists. The finalists will be announced on Wednesday, November 9th. When the finalists are announced you will be able to vote for your favorite on Facebook. The results of the vote will be a major factor in which organizations are ultimately selected to be our four new partners.
The four new partners will be announced on Wednesday, November 16.
We hope that you will participate in this selection process and encourage your friends and family to do the same. Your voice helps make SMCU a reflection of you, which is an important part of our being a co-op.
