In Their Own Words...

 A Justice Federal Member and former State Police Trooper with a Presidential commendation had his livelihood impacted by a health condition that unfortunately affected his ability to earn a living for his family. The Foundation approved a hardship grant to assist his family by easing their bill paying monthly stress, providing essentials, and moving them towards financial stability.

“From the bottom of my heart, I extend my sincerest gratitude to each person who played a part in making this happen. My family and I will be forever grateful to each of you. I declare that I won’t be in this place long: therefore, in the future I too will be donating to this awesome fund to better someone else’s life.” — Harold

 Larry, a long-time Member of Justice Federal Credit Union has a handicap that makes it very difficult for him to work a routine job. The Foundation approved a hardship grant to assist him in obtaining a used car that provides the transportation he needs to best support himself.

“…I have been thinking about the grant that the JFCU Foundation has gifted me. I am truly thankful for the grant. I appreciate what the JFCU Foundation is doing for me. The grant will help me to better my current situation. Words cannot express how grateful I am for the grant. I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart…the JFCU Foundation has been a blessing to me and my family. Thank you, God Bless.” — Larry

 “When I thought of how much good the JFCU Foundation will do to promote education and reduce hardship for members of the law enforcement and justice communities in the years ahead, I felt it was important to make a donation to get in on the ground floor and help get it started.” — Greg & Marilyn Polonica

 "It is a privilege to be one of the Founders of the Justice Federal Credit Union Foundation. Just as the Credit Union proudly serves the financial needs of the law enforcement community, the Foundation serves to assist Members and their families who through no fault of their own have experienced injury, illness, a catastrophic life event or natural disaster with hardship grants. The Foundation is a noble and worthy non-profit organization, dedicated to the support of our law enforcement community. I hope you will consider a contribution to our Foundation today.” — Tom Wiseman, FBI, retired
