Return the Match!

The Sustainable Systems Research Foundation was recently selected as one of 11 non-profit organizations to participate in Santa Cruz Community Credit Union’s RETURN THE FAVOR Giving Campaign. It’s an excellent opportunity for us to get much-needed funds for our community programs. Here’s how you can donate during this campaign:

  1. Go to the RETURNTHEFAVOR official donation page: https://www.grapevine.org/fund/gmsan/Santa-Cruz-Community-Credit- Union-2022-RETURN-THE-FAVOR-Campaign

  2. Use a debit or credit card to make a donation to The SUSTAINABLE SYSTEMS RESEARCH FOUNDATION.

  3. The Credit Union will automatically match your gift up to a total of $5,000 in donations.  (SCCCU has allocated $55,000 for all participating organizations, each of which will receive matches.)

  4. You’ll receive confirmation of your donation and a receipt.

If you prefer to donate using cash or check, please visit any SCCCU branch to do so.

RETURN THE FAVOR is SCCCU’s commitment to providing financial support to local non-profits that help the most vulnerable in our community. We hope you’ll consider donating at this time, especially as we enter the holiday season. We appreciate your help and hope we can work together to make a difference.
