Great news, everyone: CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union surpassed its 70th Anniversary Community Challenge goal of $700,000 in refinanced loan savings, meaning that both Skyline and Northern Virginia-based volunteer network Volunteer Alexandria each received $7,000 in donations!
Said Commonwealth One president/CEO Charlotte Cash on the prodigious accomplishment: “We are very excited about surpassing our goal before the end of the challenge….Not only were we able to help people save on their loans, but we will also be able to donate $7,000 to Volunteer Alexandria and Skyline Literacy. This is a big accomplishment for our community.”
You can read more about the Challenge on CommonWealth One’s main website and its Community Challenge website.
Thanks again to Commonwealth One for its generous donation and choice to include us in its 70th Anniversary Community Challenge!

According to one Latin saying, “ipsa scientia potestas est”–or “knowledge is power,” as we Anglophones say. It’s a saying in which we at Skyline firmly believe: with knowledge, all things are possible. All visions can be realized. All dreams can come true. Whether you’re aiming to take that bold first step toward obtaining American citizenship or just want to help your children do their homework, Skyline can help you achieve that goal.

There are more ways to help Skyline’s learners than just volunteering. Another great way is good, old-fashioned donating. Since Skyline is a no-profit organization, every single dollar donated to it goes directly to helping its learners achieve their goals of bettering themselves and improving both their lives and the lives of their family members.
