Serving our Community
Our community involvement begins with the fundamental belief that as a member-owned financial cooperative we want to go beyond providing financial services. At Community, First we live and breathe the credit union philosophy of "People Helping People" and have a solid history of providing our time and resources in ways that help promote financial literacy, social well-being and improve the quality of life where our members live and work.
One of our largest community sponsorships is as the title sponsor for the Community First Fox Cities Marathon Festival of Races. This family-friendly event promotes wellness and provides a variety of races and activities for more than 5,000 annually.
At Community First, our employees join in our commitment to community involvement by donating their time to volunteer for numerous charities and organizations throughout the communities we serve. In 2017, our employees provided nearly 20,500 volunteer hours to 468 causes or organizations.
Many employees of Community First share their knowledge, expertise and experience and help lead charitable and non-profit organizations as a member of the board of directors or governing committee.
Community First Credit Union has a strong track record of providing financial support to local organizations and fundraising events. In 2017, we partnered with members to contribute just over $1 million in financial support to help build strong communities!
