Community Rewards Recipients

In addition to helping members reach their financial goals, Nusenda Credit Union is also committed to supporting the community initiatives members care about.

With every signature-based transaction made by a member with a Nusenda Visa® debit card, Nusenda contributes a cash reward to the community category of the member’s choice; the Nusenda Foundation is responsible for distribution of those funds.

In 2016 and 2017 the Nusenda Foundation distributed nearly $1 million to organizations statewide that are positively impacting the communities they serve. Nusenda’s Community Rewards program supports programs in five impact areas: Education, Healthcare, The Arts, Environment and Wildlife, and Community Services and Support.

Here are some stories from Nusenda’s Community Rewards partners, and the key services they provide in the communities where we live, work, and play. 

Ronald McDonald House Charities of New Mexico

The funding we receive supports our Ronald McDonald Family Room inside the hospital.
