Cedar Point to Donate Funds to Local Outreach Organization

Cedar Point Federal Credit Union has launched "Think Outside the Mailbox," an eStatement sign-up campaign that will donate funds to The Mission.

For every member who elects to replace paper statements with eStatements, Cedar Point will donate $1 to The Mission.  Founded in 2013, The Mission is a local outreach whose purpose is to provide for those in poverty. The organization helps individuals develop the skills necessary to move from the streets into their own home or apartment, all without governmental assistance. The Mission offers more than handouts and warm showers.

They establish relationships, provide job training, budget classes, and teach basic computer skills. Their goal is to train and equip those struggling to become competent, self-sufficient individuals who can break the cycle of homelessness.

Cedar Point believes in the credit union philosophy of "People Helping People." This belief extends not only to our members but also to the community. That's why we are donating to The Mission. "We're conservatively expecting at least 200 eStatement sign-ups," said Kristin Kauffman, Cedar Point's Marketing Manager. "The last time we held a similar campaign, over 2,000 people chose to turn off their paper statements. Think of the difference Cedar Point could make for those who use The Mission’s services!”

Not only will this campaign serve as a fundraiser, but it will also help Cedar Point towards its goal of becoming more environmentally friendly "I think we can really make a positive impact while our community grapples with the effects of COVID-19," said Charles Roach, CEO and President of Cedar Point. " We are giving back to those who need it most right now. We are also able to decrease our environmental footprint every time a member signs up for eStatements. Truly, when the credit union saves money on mailing paper statements, those savings go back to our members in the form of better rates and higher dividends."

Even more exciting, each member who signs up for eStatements during this promotion will be automatically entered into a drawing to win one of two $500 cash prizes. The winners will be announced on or before September 2, 2020. Cedar Point will announce their total donation amount in early September.
