Veridian Credit Union awards $38,000 to 20 nonprofits for Giving Tuesday


Through its annual Spark the Spirit campaign, Veridian Credit Union awarded $38,000 to 20 nonprofits across Iowa and eastern Nebraska in celebration of Giving Tuesday. Veridian employees nominated their favorite local nonprofits, then public voting determined how much was awarded to each organization. Des Moines Refugee Support received the top votes in the metro region, and earned $5,000. Other Des Moines nonprofits that received funding were the Animal Rescue League of Iowa, Children’s Cancer Connection, Ankeny Service Center and Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity. “The holidays are often a time of increased need, and many in our communities are facing an additional, unique set of challenges this year,” said Renee Christoffer, Veridian president and CEO. “Spark the Spirit is one way to give and a reminder for all of us of the importance of giving locally.”
