Climate Action Initiatives
KCCU partners with the City of Kingston to support Climate Action Initiatives
Kingston Community Credit Union joined the City of Kingston in September 2020 to support climate action projects proposed by Habitat for Humanity and Martha’s Table through the Kingston Community Climate Action Fund. The Kingston Community Climate Action Fund was developed to support local charities and not-for-profit organizations, and their initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) and/or air emissions; increase energy conservation or efficiency; reduce or divert organic waste; or assist with Climate Change adaptation and technology innovation reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs). KCCU accepted donations at our branches during the donation phase of the project and committed to match donations made at our branches up to $5,000. Donations were also accepted online through CanadaHelps.
“At Kingston Community Credit Union, we place community first, and we are proud to support a fund that will benefit today’s residents and all of us as we move towards a more sustainable future!” said Jon Dessau, CEO of KCCU.
