Who We Are
Greater Alliance Federal Credit Union has been serving the communities it’s been charted to serve for the past 80 years.
Over the past 34 years, Greater Alliance has raised funds that support different charitable organizations and causes that benefit our communities. This is done through simple member and staff contributions, lobby fundraisers, jean-day Fridays with staff and their biggest fund raising event – their annual Golf outing, which grants college funds to deserving high school students in Bergen and Passaic Counties.
Hopes and Dreams Foundation for Children was established in 2004 and is a non-profit foundation based in Bergen County, NJ, dedicated to supporting programs, activities, and research aimed at helping less fortunate and handicapped children and families through grants, donations, and scholarships.
On January 25, 2017 – the two foundations merged to form Greater Alliance Hopes and Dreams Foundation for Children, a state registered, 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. The foundation will be run by a 9-member board, chaired by Lawrence Inserra.
What We Do
At Greater Alliance Hopes & Dreams, we serve our community through monetary donations that help charitable organizations reach their goals and families overcome their financial obstacles. We strive to reach both handicapped children and those working to make a bigger impact in their lives. Monies received to help the children come from our two main fundraising events held each year: our Annual Golf Outing and Annual Beefsteak Dinner at The Brownstone. The donated amounts are dispersed to organizations and families through the help of our Greater Alliance Hopes & Dreams Board Members. Donated gifts have supported our partner organizations, programs, projects, scholarships, and many more.
In December 2015 the Foundation donated $15,000 to Children’s Aid and Family Services for the purchase of a van.
