Advertiser Disclosure

Elan is a financial services company that provides a suite of products and services to many local and regional banks and credit unions. Elan is making it easier to support local causes through a new charitable giving program benefiting 50 charities selected by credit union partners across the United States.

Elan Launches Across the Country Charitable Giving Program

Earlier this week, Elan Financial Services announced the launch of its Across the Country Charitable Giving program benefiting 50 charities across the United States. Of Elan’s 250+ active credit union partners, 50 have been randomly selected to participate in this exciting initiative to give back to the communities they serve.

The new charitable program allows each selected credit union to identify a charity of their choice in their own community. Elan will donate $12,500 to the designated organization on their behalf.

“Credit unions are a vital resource for their communities, with a mission to serve members and neighbors. We’re proud to launch Across the Country Charitable Giving and help support the positive impact our credit union partners have on their communities,” said Elan’s Credit Card GM, John Owens in a press release. “We believe giving back is more important than ever, and including our credit union partners was a meaningful component of bringing this project to fruition.”

Beyond the charitable donation to each chosen organization, Elan hopes to organize in-person volunteer events in select areas. This will provide the opportunity for Elan team members to work alongside our credit union partners and serve their neighbors.
