Tallahassee, FL (PRWEB) December 26, 2013

In the spirit of the holiday season, and following the credit union philosophy of "people helping people," auto loans (new, used or refinanced) taken out at FSU Credit Union directly benefit a local charitable organization.

FSU Credit Union donates $10 per eligible auto loan to a local charity of the month. The win-win partnership allows members get a loan with a great rate, saving them money on interest, and money to be given back to the community. A different local charity is selected each month by FSU Credit Union employees. The campaign, “Borrow 4 Less. Give Back More,” started in July. Since its inception, more than $14,000 has been donated.

The following are the chosen charities for each month along with the donation amounts:

  •     July 2013    American Heart Association    $3070
  •     August 2013     American Cancer Society     $3350
  •     September 2013     Elder Care Services     $2710
  •     October 2013     CU4Kids (Children's Miracle Network)     $2850
  •     November 2013     Children's Home Society     $2440
  •     December 2013     Leon County Humane Society     TBA
