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.
It’s time for Credit Union 1’s annual School Supply Drive. We want to help the schools in our communities by donating school supplies to give the students the tools necessary for them to succeed throughout the school year. Each branch has selected a school in the local community to receive Credit Union 1’s school supply donation.
If you would like to contribute school supplies towards our drive, the branches will have a collection bin available in the lobby July 1st - July 31st. We will also be accepting monetary donations during this time. The funds raised will be used to purchase additional school supplies to add to the donation.
Help us reach our goal of collecting 2,000 school supplies credit union wide!
Thank you for your participation. Your donations are greatly appreciated!

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.
