Credit Union 1 is grateful for the support of our community, and we show that appreciation in a variety of ways. Our REACH Committee coordinates more than 20 events each year for our staff to become involved. Events range from fun runs to fundraising drives and much more - all meant to help strengthen the quality of life for our members, friends, families, and neighbors.
Every year during the holidays, each Credit Union 1 branch chooses a Community Service Event to participate in to give back to our local communities. We want to bring our staff and members together to collectively show how much we care about the people in our communities.
We’d love for you to participate in our events! You’re invited to visit your local Credit Union 1 branch to see what kind of holiday community service event is happening in your area.

Criteria for Contributions of Time, Resources, or Money - Credit Union 1 recognizes its important role in the community as a business leader. We pride ourselves on being able to help. We know that the communities we serve will strive and grow as we all take an active part in caring for individuals and for the community as a whole.
As such, maintaining a positive corporate image, enhancing our brand, and being a part of the community are part of the mission of goodwill we share with our current and potential members throughout the communities we serve. Credit Union 1 may provide time, resources or monetary support to community agencies and organizations consistent with our image in the community.
The process to request participation from Credit Union 1 is fairly simple:
Make sure your organization or cause meets our requirements. Credit Union 1 will seek to assist not-for-profit organizations that are located or conduct activities within the Credit Union 1 field of membership, and/or organizations that are tax exempt under Section 501c(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The credit union will not support organizations that exist solely for religious purposes or political purposes or those that benefit only one individual (e.g. a fund to send one student overseas for study).
Send Credit Union 1 information about your organization and cause. Organizations must provide written information regarding their group as well as specific information regarding the event sponsorship or donation requested.
Credit Union 1 will review your submission or request. The following criteria will be used when reviewing each request:
Experience - past experience with this event/group - we will review the past success of events, including comments from sponsors.
Location - we will ensure the event/group is based within an area we cover.
Budget - appropriate budget considerations will be made to properly allocate our funds for the year.
