Community Involvement

Community Involvement

We don’t only exist to provide financial services; we have a responsibility to help improve lives. Our first responsibility is to our members, and because we are part of a cooperative movement, our philosophy is to help the community at large. We do this by supporting local charitable and social causes.

We are proud to sponsor the following organizations:
