Community Giving

Investing in Our Community

We’re here to help communities thrive.

At People’s Credit Union, we believe we have a responsibility to help make this world a better place and that starts with how we help our neighbors and neighborhoods thrive every day. As part of our culture, there are guiding principles that help us live our philosophy of “people helping people.”

As a local community credit union, we support many nonprofit charitable agencies and organizations within the communities we serve through sponsorships and donations. We are purposeful about our support and have several concentrations which align with our community priorities.
