The Long Island GLBT Services Network is proud to announce Bethpage Federal Credit Union as the Presenting Sponsor of Long Island Pride 2013 to be held on Saturday, June 8, 2013 in Huntington Village. Bethpage’s sponsorship is the largest corporate contribution received in the Parade’s 23-year history.
“The Network applauds Bethpage Federal Credit Union for its leadership in supporting Long Island Pride as the largest GLBT cultural event on Long Island,” says Network CEO David Kilmnick. “With Bethpage’s support for 2013, we are able to build upon the success of Long Island Pride 2012 with more groups marching in the parade, more exhibitors at PrideFest in Huntington’s Heckscher Park, and headliner entertainment.” More than 13,000 attended PrideFest in 2012 – nearly three times more than in previous years.
“Bethpage is proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of Long Island Pride 2013 to support The Network’s efforts to build visibility and community as part of our ongoing commitment to cultural diversity and responsible banking,” says Linda Armyn, Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy at Bethpage.
The sponsorship builds on Bethpage’s support that began in 2011 when The Network named the Bethpage Community Room at The Center at Garden City to acknowledge a major gift from Bethpage – the largest corporate gift in The Network’s history. Additionally, Bethpage created an affinity program providing additional donations to The Network whenever a constituent of The Network opens an account.
The Bethpage Affinity Program provides The Network’s tens of thousands of constituents the opportunity to be part of community credit union that has been a partner to and supporter of The Network. This unique partnership with Bethpage also marked the first time that any Long Island company established such a program with a GLBT organization.
Bethpage Federal Credit Union was approved for the largest federal community charter in the United States in 2003, and is now the largest credit union on Long Island and in New York State. Bethpage is a leading community financial institution with over 212,000 members, 26 branches, and 60 shared service center locations throughout Nassau and Suffolk Counties as well as over 425 surcharge-free ATMs in supermarkets, pharmacies, and wholesale stores throughout the region.
