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.
 

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!

Back to School Bash

The 6th Annual Back to School Bash took place at the Kukui Grove Shopping Center. This year, volunteers from Kauai's Credit Unions and other organizations packed over 2,000 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, a health fair, and even free books!
 


KIFB- Kaua'i Marriott Employee Food Drive

Kaua'i Marriott associates whom have been laid off or furloughed, since March, received food packages and hot meals donated by the Kaua'i Independent Food Bank. A combined volunteer effort between Kaua'i's Credit Unions and other organizations made it possible to package and distribute more than 300 bags. The intent of the food packages is to feed not only the employee but their families.

Wilcox Elementary Read-a-Thon

Our ohana at Wilcox Elementary School invited us to participate in their Read-A-Thon day. Our employees went to different classrooms ranging in grade levels and read their choice of story to the students. The Read-A-Thon was hosted by Wilcox's Parent Teacher Students Association.


21st Annual Charity Golf Tournament

The Gather FCU Annual Charity Golf Tournament benefiting Wilcox Hospital's Emergency Department and Trauma Center via the Kapi'olani Children's Miracle Network, hosted its 21st tournament this year despite many new rules and regulations due to COVID-19. For 21 years, we've 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 October 24th tournament at Puakea Golf Club helped us meet our fundraising goal and we're excited to announce that $50,000 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.
 


Building Savers

In May of 2019, after an inquiry from our employees about a field trip for their children's pre-school class, the Building Savers Field Trip was created. The field trip starts with some “fun” financial literacy exercises, followed by a trip through the teller line where every child gets to make a deposit. Then the entire class was given a tour of the Kukui Grove Branch as an interactive treasure hunt! 
 
The field trip is aimed at learning and forming positive connections to money which in turn, forms good savings habits.
