TOPEKA, Kan. – In an effort to support and give back to the local community, Envista Federal Credit Union has helped raise $211,503 in 2023 for 12 local non-profit organizations, including two in Reno County, through the EnvistaCares Challenge – a program designed to raise awareness and community support.

Each month the EnvistaCares Challenge provides one local organization with a one-month media package valued at $10,000 to share their story and ask the community for support. Through this program, Envista Federal Credit Union provides a dollar-for-dollar match, up to $2,500.

“Our goal at Envista is to make an impact with our giving,” said Ashley Esquibel, Chief Administrative Officer at Envista. “It’s incredible to hear about the work being done by these organizations and then to see the outpouring of support they receive during the EnvistaCares Challenge. We can’t thank our community enough for joining us in providing funds to these vital programs.”
