SAN FRANCISCO (1/2/15)--If last year's New Year's resolutions for San Francisco FCU (SFFCU) were to raise tens of thousands of dollars in charitable donations and to amass hundreds of volunteer hours, it sounds like the credit union stuck with them.

The $885 million-asset credit union announced this week it exceeded its CommunityShare goals for 2014, raising more than $135,000 for local causes and volunteering more than 900 employee hours.
SFFCU targeted $100,000 raised and 800 volunteer hours worked, and zoomed past both goals over the past 12 months.
"Our CommunityShare program is a constant priority here," said Steven Stapp, president/CEO, SFFCU. "We are looking forward to the coming year and continuing our donations, volunteer hours and community partnerships in 2015."
The efforts the credit union and its employees participated in last year included volunteer nights at San Francisco and Marin Food Bank and Second Harvest Food Bank, the San Francisco AIDS Walk, Light the Night Walk for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and playground cleanups with the San Francisco Parks Alliance.
SFFCU's CommunityShare program allows the credit union, its employees and its members to give back to the San Francisco and San Mateo communities through donations, volunteer work and fundraising.
The program will march on into 2015, and SFFCU plans to set an even higher bar to hurdle in terms of dollars raised and volunteer hours worked.
