With a refugee population firmly established, and in a nod of confidence, Missoula Federal Credit Union put its money behind its values on Wednesday night, donating $20,000 to Soft Landing Missoula and the International Rescue Committee.

Joined by members of the Global Alliance for Banking on Values, credit union president and CEO Jack Lawson praised Missoula's resettlement efforts, saying financial institutions hold great sway over today's social and economic outcomes and must place good over profit.

"We can choose to pursue explicitly positive and sustainable social, economic and environmental change, or pursue profits, which is relatively simple, and just let the chips fall where they may," Lawson said. "We seek to empower people over profit, and we choose to include all walks of life in our work."
