Sound Credit Union has been recognized by CardRates.com with an Editor’s Choice Award ™ for Community Involvement.

The website lists financial education initiatives, support for employee volunteerism and donations to local nonprofit organizations as reasons for choosing Sound.

“People helping people is the credit union philosophy,” [VP/Public Relations Jennifer Reed] said. “That is what credit unions are all about. We believe in doing the right thing for our members and communities.”

CardRates.com writes “Sound also reaches more people than ever since it acquired The Bank of Washington earlier this year and greatly expanded its service area. Even before the acquisition, the credit union’s engagement level with local organizations was impressive.”
