“The Big Giver contest provides another fun way to give back, raise awareness, and support our community in impactful ways,” said Frank Wasson, president, and CEO of CommonWealth One. "With so many worthy non-profits in the area, we want to let our members decide who will receive the donation."

CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union continues its commitment to its community through its inaugural The Big Giver Contest that kicked off earlier this month. The Big Giver contest is a competition where members of the community nominate a charity, foundation, not-for-profit organization, or community interest project that means the most to them. All entries will be reviewed by the CommonWealth One Executive Leadership Team and up to five submissions will be selected to advance to the video phase. Finalists will be based on the following criteria:

  • Statement(s) submitted by the entrant on how the charity serves the community and why that charity is important to them

  • Sincerity and persuasiveness of the submission

  • Location of the charity and its impact on the community

  • Financial and logistical needs of the charity, and the potential impact of a prize

CommonWealth One will work with the finalists to create an engaging video explaining why their charity deserves to win. The finalists’ videos will be posted on CommonWealth One’s social media sites and voting by the public happens between March 13 - 31, 2023. The charity of the video finalist with the most votes will receive a $10,000 donation.
