Frontwave Donates to 10 Charities In Support of Giving Tuesday

November 29, 2022

Oceanside, CA — Frontwave Credit Union recently donated $5,000 to 10 charities in support of the global Giving Tuesday movement.

Frontwave team donates to 10 charities“We exist to serve our Members and we are so thankful for the communities who have supported us over the past 70 years,” said Bill Birnie, President and CEO of Frontwave Credit Union. “Today we show our gratitude to them by partnering with 10 charities who strive to be a force for good in the communities they serve, just like Frontwave.”

The 10 charities chosen for Frontwave’s Giving Tuesday donations are: 

“We are grateful for Frontwave’s commitment to bolstering the efforts of agencies like WRC and others that rely on the support and encouragement of our local communities,” said Lauren-Jane Stephenson Director of Development and Business Services for WRC. “Together, we are making a difference in our communities and showcasing the unity and empathetic care that makes North County strong.”

These charities were selected by Frontwave Dream Maker employees who voted for the top 10 non-profit organizations they thought deserved an Act of Kindness donation. Frontwave’s Acts of Kindness Campaign has been a year-long celebration commemorating its 70th Anniversary and has included simple acts of kindness such as paying for active duty military members' gas, paying for pet adoption fees, sponsoring local schools and PTAs, and more.

“St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital was founded on the vision of giving back to others for a greater purpose,” said Jennifer Castell from ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “We thank Frontwave Credit Union and their employees who selected us for this donation that supports our founder’s belief that every child deserves a chance to live their best life and celebrate every moment.”
