Highlights of the 2015 survey include:
Saskatchewan credit unions contributed $7.9 million to growing communities which is an increase from the reported $7.5 million in 2014.
Credit union employees volunteered 25,917 hours in their communities which is a significant decrease over 2014. Note: The decrease is probably related to the fact that the volunteer question was split into two categories this year – volunteerism during paid work hours and volunteerism on non-paid time.
337 scholarships and bursaries valued at $243,300 were awarded by credit unions.
Saskatchewan credit unions provided reduced/waived service charges and other financial services to community organizations in the amount of $1,073,877.
Fundraising activities at Saskatchewan credit unions resulted in $154,250 for local charities.
