About Project Spotlight
Project Spotlight is a program created by Beacon Credit Union that awards charitable organizations that reach out to provide valuable services to their communities. Nominations are taken from each community in which Beacon Credit Union operates a full-service member center. The community then votes to determine which charitable organizations receives funding.
