We Share a Common Thread Foundation
Our common thread is at the core of all we do
Our Mission: To support the people in our community
When our community prospers, we all prosper. Established in 2011, our We Share a Common Thread Foundation partners with local philanthropic organizations to expand access to food, shelter, clothing, healthcare, and education.
Every quarter, the We Share A Common Thread Foundation donates $1,500 to a worthy area non-profit organization, through our “Give a Click” program.
One single click can make a difference, when you vote for one of this quarter’s featured groups. The non-profit with the most votes will receive $1,500 from the foundation. It’s that simple!Learn More About Give A Click
Thanks to the generous contributions from our donors, this year’s fundraiser collected more than $115,000 and supported 146 local charities. We truly live the mission of our foundation and the strength of “we share a common thread.” With your help, we will continue to expand our opportunities to give.Learn more about our annual fundraiser
Steve Jones Legacy Fund
On September 29, 2016, the Merrimack Valley Community lost one of its finest Ambassadors, Stephen Jones.
A member of our team for 20 years, as well as many boards and committees for various nonprofits, Steve believed wholeheartedly we should all “Go Forth and Serve”. To keep his memory alive, Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union created the Steve Jones Legacy Fund to support non-profits that honor Steve’s values and legacy. His genuine compassion, friendly nature, and unwavering commitment to so many organizations in the Merrimack Valley will forever be missed, but his legacy lives on.Learn more and make a donation
