STCU gives $1,000 to Basset Rescue


Spokane Teachers Credit Union recently donated $1,000 to Washington Basset Rescue when the nonprofit group received the most votes in an online version of STCU’s “Who do you love?” giving program.

Beginning on Valentine’s Day, the credit union asked visitors of its Facebook site to vote for the local nonprofit they’d like to receive a $1,000 check. The basset hound rescue group received 759 votes. The online program nominated 85 organizations.

This is the first time STCU has used Facebook for a cash giveaway, but it has donated a total of $5,000 to six organizations in the past half year through “Who do you love?”
