‘Goals For Good’ program distributes $9,300 in Marquette County


Honor Credit Union is proud to announce the total donation of $9,300 to 13 local non-profit organizations through its Goals for Good program.

Originally launched in 2018 through a partnership with the Northern Michigan University hockey team and the Radio Results Network, the program has grown from supporting five organizations to thirteen organizations.

For every Wildcat goal scored in a home game last NMU hockey season, Honor donated $100 to a designated nonprofit, with a minimum donation of $300 per game.

Throughout the 2021-2022 season, the Wildcats have been fighting a big fight on the ice, resulting in many wins, which is an even bigger win for the community.

“In Year 3 of Goals for Good, it’s amazing how many organizations we’ve reached,” said Jamie Gollakner, Regional Director of Honor. “When I watch games, I can’t help but smile at the excitement of the crowd when the Wildcats score. This is not only a score for NMU but also for this organization in our community. Five organizations received more than $1,000 for their bottom line. It’s really unbelievable !
