Taking its support a step further, the Cal Poly Federal Credit Union this year will match the donations of its members for Matt’s Run.
“We will be matching up to $1,000 in total donations,” says Barbara Bean, the CEO and president of the credit union.
The institution has always been involved in Matt’s Run through donations and with many of the staff participating in the 5K, but the credit union wanted to go the extra mile.
“It’s a community event,” says Bean. “We thought matching donations would get more people involved to give, as the spirit of giving is contagious.”
Bean also hopes that with the donation match will get more people to participate.
