This summer, Summit Credit Union is giving members and non-members a chance to do good.

Pay it Forward

The Pay it Forward program shows our philosophy of people helping people in action,” said Rebecca Gerothanas, Senior Vice President, Marketing at Summit Credit Union. “It’s not every day that you receive $10 to help someone else.

This summer, Summit Credit Union is giving members and non-members a chance to do good. Through its second annual “Pay it Forward” program, Summit will tour three branch locations and three local community events, giving folks $10 with just one request: help someone else with it – Pay it Forward! The initiative empowers members and non-members to ‘do more’ by having an impact on someone else’s well being.

At each event, 100 people will be given $10 with the assignment to Pay it Forward. Each participant will be videotaped describing how they plan to help someone else with the money. Participants will be able to share their videos on or even submit their own if they can’t make it to an event. Friends, family, co-workers and strangers will be able to rate their favorite video on Summit’s website. From September 15-30, 2010, the community can visit to rate their favorite video responses and the winner will receive $500. Summit will donate another $500 to the winner’s United Way charity of choice.

Be sure to follow the Pay it Forward events this summer!
