|Gesa Credit Union became The Memorial Foundation’s first Mission Partner by pledging $30,000 in support of its four initiatives: Children’s Health, Healthy Yakima, Cancer Care, and Compass Care. The partnership was announced and celebrated at the Greater Yakima Chamber of Commerce’s Business After Hours hosted at Gesa Credit Union’s South First Street branch office.
“We are grateful for the support from Gesa Credit Union and excited about the investment they are making in the Yakima Valley,” said Erin Black, Chief Executive Officer at The Memorial Foundation. “Through our partnership, Gesa Credit Union is supporting the improvement of health care outcomes across the entire lifespan.”

With the creation of the Mission Partnership, organizations are able to invest in improving and sustaining a healthier and more vital community. Through their support, Gesa Credit Union will have direct impact on areas of wellbeing across the entire lifespan, from birth through end-of-life care.
“Helping people is a part of the credit union philosophy and that help extends to organizations within our community. We want to build awareness of the incredible work being done by The Memorial Foundation,” said Don Miller, President and Chief Executive Officer at Gesa Credit Union. “Our partnership is a perfect example of how credit unions can work with local organizations to provide much needed support for programs in our community.”
