FivePoint Credit Union recently announced their campaign to help fund cancer research and ancillary programs offered through the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. In making the announcement, Erik Shaw, President/CEO, stated, “The vast majority of Southeast Texans have, either directly or indirectly, been touched by cancer and we wanted to find an impactful way to contribute to the fight against this disease.”

The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life is the flagship charity for FivePoint Credit Union. Over the last eight years, FivePoint has donated over a quarter million dollars to ACS and now will do even more.

For the next twelve weeks, May 11 – July 31, one percent of the value of every loan funded at FivePoint Credit Union will be donated to the American Cancer Society, with a $500 maximum donation per loan. As an incentive to the consumer, up to a 2% loan rate discount is being offered. Normal credit granting criteria apply and the offer excludes credit cards, lines of credit and mortgage loans.

The credit union has set a contribution goal of $300,000. As Mr. Shaw stated, “We take our mission statement ‘To improve the quality of life for our members and the community’ seriously and our desire with this contribution is to help move the needle in the fight against cancer.”
