Gather Federal Credit Union
Good Things Happen Here
In 2019 Gather Federal Credit Union donated over $134,000- directly into the Kaua`i Community, and to date has donated over $429,663- of fundraised monies to Wilcox Health Foundation. In 2019, Gather FCU staff also donated over 1,500 unpaid community service hours for the island of Kaua’i.
Today, Gather FCU continues to make a difference in the lives of its members and island communities, especially during these unprecedented times. They stand by the Credit Union Philosophy of “People Helping People”, as they offer counseling and assistance to families experiencing financial difficulties. In response to COVID-19 Gather FCU processed 125 PPP Loans for $3.4 million dollars. They also provided scholarships and supplies for our keiki to help them get back to school. For 6 consecutive weeks, through partnership with the “Show Aloha Challenge”, they have been helping to feed our Kupuna who have underlying conditions and limited resources to meals and transportation. For every “Show Aloha” t-shirt sale, that money provides for two (2) hot lunch meals to our Kupuna.
