In 2023, Aspire Credit Union reached a significant milestone by completing over 1,000 volunteer hours, an impressive feat that required dedication and teamwork. With 100% participation from our team of 22 employees, we were able to total 1,023 hours of community volunteerism. On average, each team member committed more than 46 hours of volunteerism back to the greater Minot community.

Our community partners highly value our dedication to giving back. They often express amazement at how much our small crew can do to support their needs. “We love hearing from our local partners on how we can support them,” shared Rianne Kuhn, Marketing Communications Coordinator for Aspire. “We are known as a credit union that is always giving back, and we receive calls asking if we can ‘pull it off’ when things come up on a short timeline. Our team takes great joy in the opportunities created by our volunteerism.”

Our impact is much larger than just our monetary gifts – we also have something more valuable than money to give: our time. Aspire Credit Union has built a synergistic relationship with several nonprofits, churches, teachers, and worthy organizations within our community. We take pride in supporting and learning about the needs of our community. Most importantly, with that knowledge, we figure out the best ways to give back.

The Alliance of Nonprofits recognized and honored Aspire Credit Union as the Most Impactful Business of the Year in 2023, as voted on by the nonprofit community. This recognition was positive reinforcement that Aspire Credit Union is finding ways to support the community, its members, and living up to the ‘People Helping People’ credit union motto.
