Alaska is our home, and we're wholeheartedly invested in our state.
Fill Plates, Nourish Communities
Each month, we host a different Alaskan fundraiser for causes our members care about. 100% of the funds we raise go toward local nonprofits, to help friends and neighbors in need across our state. In November, we're raising funds for the Food Bank of Alaska.

COVID-19 Community Outreach
Recently, as many Alaskan families and businesses faced financial difficulty due to COVID-19, CU1 employees created a plan to raise awareness and funds for those in need. Through a variety of #CU1Foodie challenges on social media, we encouraged Alaskans to order takeout or delivery in support of small restaurants, donate goods to their local food bank and more. Together, we gave $17,000+ to small restaurants, provided 677 meals to first responders, and made a $1,200 donation to the Food Bank of Alaska.
To provide additional aid for vulnerable community members during this difficult time, we also donated $2,500 in gift cards to patrons of Red Apple and a special $2,500 to the Food Bank of Alaska to help them get their boxes out. We also worked to donate enough meals and snacks for 400 people to the Children’s Lunchbox, in support of families facing hunger.
