Common Cents Winners 2021

Common Cents is a special feature of Cooperative Federal's VISA Debit Card. When members make purchases with Coop Fed cards, they generate "small change" for the credit union, and this income is shared with local, non-profit groups that reflect our members' values. It's community rewards!

You voted and the results are in. Congratulations to the Food Bank of Central New York, which came in first place, as well as the Skä•noñh Great Law of Peace Center and the Syracuse PEACE Council, our two runners up. All three organizations received cash prizes, thanks to Coop Fed members.*
