Prospera raises almost $105,000 for United Way

The credit union supports the organization through a workplace campaign

Prospera Credit Union’s annual United Way campaign raised more than $104,500 in 2014.

The money was raised by the credit union, whose corporate office is in Abbotsford, and its 430 employees from the Okanagan to Vancouver.

In addition to Prospera’s fundraising success, for the fifth year in a row the credit union had the opportunity to sponsor a community representative to assist United Way in their campaign efforts.

Throughout the fall, Prospera’s sponsored rep Donna Vogel visited organizations of all sizes to share information about the many vital programs and services that are supported by United Way funding.

Prospera employees have been co-ordinating United Way workplace campaigns for more than nine years now, raising more than $600,000 in that time.
