Nusenda Community Day 

Since our beginning in 1936, Nusenda Credit Union has operated under a fundamental principle: do well, so that we can do good. We believe that giving means more than just writing a check. Our financial and in-kind contributions are shared with our partner organizations and nonprofits in order to address the needs in the communities where we live, work, and play.

As part of our commitment to the communities we serve, Nusenda Credit Union’s employees devoted their time off Oct. 8, 2018 to support one of our seven cooperative principles, “people helping people,” by volunteering their time to five organizations in Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and Socorro.

  • Roadrunner Food Bank of New Mexico, serving New Mexico’s hungry since 1980, the organization is currently the state’s largest food bank, providing 30 million pounds of food a year to a network of hundreds of partner agencies and regional food banks. Through that network, they are helping 70,000 hungry people in New Mexico every week – equivalent to a city the size of Santa Fe. 
  • Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge offers a unique environmental education and recreation opportunity in a highly populated area while promoting a wildlife conservation message. It is part of the National Wildlife Refuge System, a national network of lands and waters managed for the benefit of wildlife, habitat and you. Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge is the Southwest’s first urban wildlife refuge and serves as an urban oasis for both wildlife and people.
  • The National Hispanic Cultural Center is dedicated to preserving, promoting, and advancing Hispanic culture, arts, and humanities. The NHCC presents more than 700 events and creates an educational opportunity for thousands more through its art museum, library, genealogy center, and other resources. The NHCC is a division of the State of New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs and is further supported by the National Hispanic Cultural Center Foundation.
  • La Familia Medical Center is a community health center providing medical and dental care to the underserved people of Santa Fe, NM, since 1972. Its mission is to foster community well-being in partnership with patients by providing excellent, accessible, family-centered medical, dental and behavioral health care. Services are offered on a sliding fee scale, according to family size and income.
  • Parkview Elementary School is located in Socorro and is one of five elementary schools in the Socorro Consolidated School District. There are 580 students enrolled from kindergarten to third grade.

Each day, in every way, there are dedicated New Mexicans who are devoting their time, energy, and perseverance to help all in our state rise and succeed together. It is the way this state was shaped. Nusenda Credit Union’s work is just a sliver of the overall effort – and for the last 82 years, it’s been our honor and privilege to serve New Mexico and its residents. 


Rewarding those we serve.
