BALTIMORE COUNTY – One local bank is looking to do more this year. Freedom Federal Credit Union, a local community-chartered bank, has announced the creation of The Freedom to Help Foundation.
Freedom Federal is looking to further its commitment to community support and to give back to the people, the organizations, and the communities it serves within Baltimore and Harford Counties.
Mike MacPherson, President, and CEO of Freedom Federal Credit Union, says giving back to the communities that helped it grow is essential to building relationships.
“As Freedom has continued to grow, so too has our commitment to the people and organizations that do so much good in our shared communities, MacPherson said.
The Freedom to Help Foundation has been incorporated as a 501 (c)3 non-profit, separate from the Credit Union. The help foundation’s mission statement is to “enrich the communities we serve, empower individual success through education, provide resources for health and wellness, and to support our military and their families.”
“In the last five years, Freedom Federal Credit Union has supported over 80+ organizations annually with over $1.0M of financial support during that time”, said MacPherson. “The Freedom to Help Foundation will allow us to grow that support in ways we could not even dream before.”
The foundation’s board of directors will oversee how funds are distributed for community support based on the needs of Baltimore and Harford County residents.
“Establishing The Freedom to Help Foundation takes our commitment to do good in the community to another level. And it also allows others to share in the good we do, MacPherson added. “The Foundation creates an opportunity for our business and community partners, members, and employees to participate and join us in our philanthropic initiatives. Together, we can accomplish more and do more for those in need.”
