At the end of every year, Evergreen Credit Union makes a donation to support tree planting and reforestation efforts. These donations are part of our commitment to plant a tree for every new member and loan closing. In 2022, we had three recipients of our tree planting funds.
In celebration of the two communities our branches reside in, a $1500 donation was made to both the Village of Fox Crossing Urban Forestry Department and the City of Appleton Urban Forestry Department. We are proud to support these local tree planting efforts and provide funding for the Village’s annual Arbor Day celebration. An additional donation was made to the Forests of the Future Fund managed by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
Since 2014, Evergreen Credit Union has donated funds to plant over 13,775 trees, including additional donations to support local Urban Forestry initiatives. Read more about our environmental certifications at https://www.evergreencu.com/our-mission/environmental-certifications/.
