Here at SMCU, giving back to the community we serve is more than just a goal; we make it a priority. One way we give back is through Feel Good Checking™. For every Feel Good Checking account opened, we donate $20 to one of our seven non-profit community partners, who are chosen each year by SMCU and members of our community. Now that 2012 is coming to a close, it’s time to decide who we’ll be partnering with in the coming year.
We will be accepting nominations from October 15 to October 30 for organizations* to become our 2013 Feel Good Checking partners.

Voting for Our Partners
Once the nomination period has ended, SMCU will review the list of organizations and narrow it down to 21 finalists, including our current partners who will be up for re-election. The finalists will be announced on Thursday, November 1. For one week, November 1 to November 7, you will be able to vote for your favorite finalist here. The results of the vote will weigh heavily in the selection process, so be sure to support your favorite non-profit through both nominating and voting.
The 2013 Feel Good Checking partners will be announced on Tuesday, November 13.
We encourage all SMCU members as well as members of our community to participate. Your voice helps make SMCU a reflection of you, which is an important part of our being a co-op. Happy nominating!
