GreenState pledges $125,000 to African-American Credit Union Coalition campaign


GreenState Credit Union, Iowa’s largest credit union, announced a $25,000 per year pledge for five years totaling $125,000 in support of the “I’ve Got Five on It” campaign, a financial inclusion campaign of the African-American Credit Union Coalition. Jeffrey Disterhoft, president and CEO of GreenState, said in a statement that “AACUC and the Commitment to Change Initiative exemplifies the community service spirit of the credit union movement.” The movement unites credit unions with one voice to make a positive impact for communities they serve, he said. The North Liberty-based credit union’s pledge is the first and largest of its kind to the initiative, which is led by the Young Professionals of AACUC. The nonprofit was incorporated in St. Louis in 1999 and is now based in Snellville, Ga. “We at AACUC are convinced that the first order of business is for communities of color to become economically self-sufficient, and financial inclusion is at the core of what we do,” stated Renée Sattiewhite, president and CEO of AACUC. Greenstate Credit Union has more than 240,000 members in Iowa.
