Suffolk Federal members donated more than $3,800 to the Girl Scouts of Suffolk County, the largest youth-serving nonprofit agency on Long Island, serving more than 40,000 girls and 7,000 adult volunteers.
Each year, Suffolk Federal members donate their cash-back incentive—five-cents from each signature-based purchase made using their Suffolk Federal Girl Scouts MasterCard® Debit Card—back to Girl Scouts. Suffolk Federal additionally donates the net proceeds of each member’s Suffolk Federal Girl Scouts checkbook purchase. Members can open a Suffolk Federal Girl Scouts checking account with a free Girl Scouts debit card by visiting www.suffolkfcu.org/personal-banking/checking, calling 631.924.8000 or visiting a local branch.
Suffolk Federal additionally supports the Girl Scouts through sponsorships of their Junior Robotics Team, Holiday Light Show and annual events.
“It’s an honor to work with the Girl Scouts of Suffolk County to provide continued opportunities for the young girls in our communities,” said Sarah McCandless, Executive Vice President & Chief Financial Officer at Suffolk Federal and Board Member for the Girl Scouts of Suffolk County. “Suffolk Federal offers a Girl Scouts checking account that brings in additional funding to their agency, which is a great way for our members and the credit union to support such an important cause. We look forward to our continued partnership.”
“We are delighted to perpetuate our longtime partnership with Suffolk Federal,” says Yvonne Grant, President & CEO for Girl Scouts of Suffolk County. “Thanks to their generosity and support, we can continue our mission of building girls of courage, confidence and character.”
