CCCU in the Community

We are committed to making a positive impact in the communities we serve. Giving back is just one of the many ways we follow the credit union motto of “people helping people.” 


We’re deeply committed to local and regional philanthropy focused on supporting housing empowerment, family wellness, and the opportunity to thrive within society. As a not-for-profit credit union, we focus on making our communities stronger, healthier places to live, work, and raise families.

Community Impact Areas of Focus

While we'd love to help all worthy causes, we concentrate our philanthropy efforts on organizations that are in alignment with our Community Impact Areas of Focus.

Housing Empowerment

Fostering social-economic empowerment in aspiring homeowners and implementing lending solutions to homeownership barriers in the communities we serve.

Family Wellness

Engaging in fundraising that benefits our local children’s hospitals and efforts that increase food & health access, encourage healthy living, and improve lives.

Opportunity to Thrive

Creating positive impact for underserved communities through financial education, and supporting efforts that provide necessary tools for success and equity.
