Outreach & Involvement


Place Over Profit

Where you put your money means something. When you join Gather FCU, you’re putting your money back into Kaua‘i and investing in the lives of your family, neighbors and friends. Back into what really matters.

At Gather, Kaua‘i comes first. We’re building homes right here, and nurturing our island’s small businesses. We’re creating an opportunity for our members through scholarships and retirement plans. We’re strengthening our community, fostering a place for growing families and big ideas.

When you put place and people first, good things happen.
 

23rd Annual Charity Golf Tournament

The Gather FCU Annual Charity Golf Tournament benefiting the Wilcox Health Foundation for Pediatric Services via the Kapi'olani Children's Miracle Network, hosted its 23rd tournament this year. For 23 years, Gather FCU hosted this fundraiser with the help of our sponsors and golfers. We especially want to thank our matching donor and title sponsor, CO-OP® Financial Services, for its Miracle Match of $10,000.

The 23rd Annual Charity Golf tournament at Puakea Golf Course helped us meet our fundraising goal and we're excited to announce that $45,000 will be donated in the name of Gather FCU and our members. We're always about people helping people and this is a big way we're doing just that.

Back to School Bash

The 8th Annual Back to School Bash returned to an in-person event and took place at the Kukui Grove Shopping Center. This year, volunteers from Kauai's Credit Unions and other organizations packed over 2,500 bags of school supplies to give away at the event. This community event is sponsored by over 20 businesses island wide and is aimed at providing much needed school supplies to students and their families at no cost. Along with school supplies, families attending the free event were treated to prize giveaways, live entertainment, keiki and youth resources and more!



2022 Scholarship Ceremony

We couldn't be more proud to put a big "Congratulations!" on blast to all of our graduating seniors. We believe deeply in supporting Kaua'i's Youth. One way we do that is with our scholarship Program.

Every year Gather awards up to 10 scholarships to high school seniors headed off to college. It's one (of many) ways we support our young people as they begin their new journey in life.

Kids Savings Project

As our community moves back to our normal routines, we were happy to welcome back our 'Ele'ele School Kids Savings Project students. At their last deposit day of the year, students took a field trip to our Waimea Office to make one final deposit before summer. They experienced doing a live transaction and got to see how going to the Credit Union isn't scary at all! Collectively, 'Ele'ele School Kids Savings Project Students saved over $19,000 this year! What a great way to end the year!


Gather Celebrates Youth Month

Gather FCU Employees Rally for Donations

The Friends of the Children's Justice Center of Kaua'i's mission is to make a positive difference for our community’s abused and neglected children. That was enough to inspire Gather FCU employees to rally together for donations, including school supplies, toiletries, toys and backpacks. The donations will help our keiki in need. You are welcome to pitch in, too. Learn more at www.kauaifcjc.org.

Kilauea ATM Blessing

In celebration of our new ATM in Kilauea at the Anaina Hou Community Park, a blessing was held. We hope that our new ATM will bring more convenience to our North Shore Members who are awaiting the arrival of our Kilauea Branch. Members who joined us were able to learn what our ATM can do and enjoyed some light refreshments as well as giveaway items.

Gather FCU Accepts the Challenge

Our Gather Team joined The Show Aloha Challenge which is a free food distribution hui that was launched on Oahu in response to the Coronavirus. Show Aloha's mission is to feed our kūpuna who have underlying conditions that put them at higher risk and have limited resources to meals and transportation. What an amazing experience. Our kūpuna were so very appreciative and happy to see us. Mahalo to all who participated and to all who supported the program through your t-shirt purchases.

We will, do this again!
