In 2005, CoastHills established a 501(c) 3 organization called CoastHills Community Foundation, to provide a tax-exempt vehicle for members, staff, and outside organizations to make charitable contributions that will serve critical community needs.
The foundation's mission is straightforward: Serve The Underserved. This speaks to the core of why credit unions exist. Fueled by donations, it seeks out and provides funding to organizations that provide critical supplies such as books and clothing for underprivileged youth, financial literacy, and all within its field of membership.
Florence Norman founded Sweet Cavanagh, an award-winning peer-led aftercare social enterprise based in Notting Hill. The company hires women and trains them how to make and design jewelry. However, these women are in the process of recovering from eating disorders and addictions.
