Common Cents 2017 Nominations Now Open!
Common Cents is a special feature of Cooperative Federal's VISA Debit Card. Purchases made with Coop Fed cards generate "small change" for the credit union. This income is shared with local, non-profit groups that reflect our members' values.
Members of Cooperative Federal can nominate their favorite organizations to receive Common Cents funds. To be eligible, nominees must have non-profit status or fiscal sponsors and primarily serve the Syracuse area. Coop Fed members can nominate one or more organizations.
Nominees will be reviewed by the Board of Directors, and all qualifying organizations will be placed on the ballot. Members will then vote to tell the board how to distribute the funds generated by VISA Debit Card purchases this year.
Nominations for the 2017 round of Common Cents must be received by March 18, 2017. Nomination forms are now available in our lobbies, or you can click here to submit online.
