Florida State University Credit Union is proud to announce that they have been able to make a $10,000 donation to Kidz1stFund Foundation to help sponsor Starz of Hope. The Kidz1stFund was created to support research on Fanconi anemia, a rare blood disease that affects thousands of children each year.
Kidz1stFund was founded by Jimbo and Candi Fisher. They have worked closely with several children's charities in the past, but when they were told that their son, Ethan, had a rare blood disease called Fanconi anemia, their lives immediately changed. They wanted to know everything they could, but soon found that there isn't much information available about the disease.
That's when they knew they had to do something that would not only help their son, but also help the many others affected by Fanconi anemia. Kidz1stFund provides support to families affected by Fanconi anemia, provides education and awareness about this disease, and raises money for Fanconi anemia research with the goal of finding a cure.
Through direct financial support or other in-kind contributions to worthwhile local organizations, and by participating in public service activities, FSUCU strives to be an active partner in the community. They recognize that practicing good corporate citizenship supports the Credit Union philosophy of people helping people.
"The entire executive management team at Florida State University Credit Union graduated from Florida State University which makes supporting this local charity, with strong ties to Florida State University, a huge accomplishment. We are excited to be able to assist them in meeting their fundraising goals," said Harmony Nagy, FSUCU Marketing Director.
Florida State University Credit Union has been serving the financial needs of the FSU Community since 1954, and continually strives to build and strengthen relationships within that community by participating in cooperative activities.
