In April Alaska USA FCU began operating under a new name, Global Credit Union, to symbolize its expanded service worldwide.
Following last year’s merger with Spokane-based Global Credit Union, Alaska USA Federal Credit Union is taking on the name of its smaller component, reflecting an international reach.
Alaska USA Federal Credit Union added two new vice presidents to its executive leadership team and promoted a current executive.
The merger combines Alaska USA’s 700,000 members with Global’s 45,000 members, resulting in an organization with combined assets of nearly $12 billion, making it one of the fifteen largest credit unions in the country.
Alaska USA Federal Credit Union selected one new executive and promoted five current executives.
“The Alaska USA Foundation is proud of the impact we can have on local nonprofit organizations in our communities,” says Dan McCue, Executive Director of the Alaska USA Foundation.
The funds will be divided in Alaska, Arizona, California, and Washington so Operation Homefront can continue to be the provider of choice for military families needing short-term relief, long-term resiliency and recurring family support programs and services.
Along with the office space, Alaska USA presented United Way of Anchorage with $42,000. The funds were comprised of employee donations and a generous corporate match contribution.
Alaska USA has donated $20,000 to Special Olympics Alaska.
“The past year has been difficult for so many of our nonprofit partners and we are so pleased to have an opportunity to provide support,” says Dan McCue, executive director, Alaska USA Foundation.
