Foundations and Granting Authorities
3Rivers Federal Credit Union Foundation
3Rivers Federal Credit Union has served this community since 1935 and is committed to supporting the people and programs that support their mission and move this community forward. The mission of the 3Rivers Credit Union Foundation is to enhance the lives of people in the communities 3Rivers serves through the support of 3 key initiatives: financial literacy, education, and health and wellness.
In January 2016 3Rivers provided generous funding that allowed us to update our computer workstations and to purchase curriculum for Financial Literacy that is helping a great deal as we work to improve our community through training, mentorship, and example. In March 2018 they again underwrote Financial Literacy curriculum and some upgrades to the instructor’s computer. See more information on their web site at https://www.3riversfcu.org/foundation.
One of the dominant global software providers, Microsoft Corporation has a very active philanthropy process. Using the TechSoup.org organization to vet public charities, Microsoft donates licenses for its products to create social and economic impact for a better tomorrow today. We have received many thousands of dollars worth of licenses, for example for Windows 10 Enterprise, Office 2016, and the cloud based Office365 services.

Employees of Aetna Insurance
Through an awesome food drive in 2015, the employees of a local Aetna Insurance office provided coffee, tea, and related supplies that lasted into the spring of this year. Through a matching grant from their corporate offices we were able to purchase two 32 inch video screens that allowed our students to SEE what the instructor was doing and FOLLOW on their own workstations. This was a drastic improvement over prior conditions where the instructor had to verbally explain what to do, and walk to each individual student and individually pointing to each detail on each student’s screen. In 2016 the corporate office sent yet another smaller grant that allows us to purchase coffee and milk for most of this year. For more information, or to find an office near you, we recommend that you see their web site at https://www.aetna.com/.

My PHD Pretty House Designs
The Lunas at My PHD completely stripped and redesigned our training office, brought in furniture, and hand crafted some rather unique art to exorcise out the drab junk closet appearance we had with our hand-me-down beggars furniture and replace it with new furnishings to reflect our state of the art training business. We now have a nice, professional looking office space where our staff and individually trained students can sit in productive inspired comfort as they work. They’d love to help your home or office too. See more information on their web site at http://www.myphdprettyhousedesigns.com.
A Plus Computers, Inc.
A Plus Computers has been in town here for years — we always visit them to buy our ball-bearing coolers. Recently Majic 95.1 ran their Majic Christmas Wish event in which someone pointed out our need for newer computers for our small-groups training lab. A Plus Computers donated three gently used machines complete with windows XP licenses, LCD monitors, keyboards and mice. This was a total surprise and we can use it to replace some of the 10-15 year old computers we have been using. See more information on A Plus’ web site at http://www.apluscomputers.com.
