Ever since our founding in 1954, Florida Credit Union has been a community leader. As a not-for-profit institution, we focus more on helping people, charities 和 local businesses than on boosting our bottom line. FCU participates in fundraisers, sponsors community events, 和 strives to serve our neighborhoods in any way possible. We're proud to invest in so many things that make north 和 central Florida special.
Florida Credit Union's branches all participate in three annual donation drives: FCU’s School Supply Drive, FCU’s Pet Supply Drive 和 FCU’s Holiday Food Drive. The proceeds raised at each location are donated to organizations in that branch’s neighborhood. Since the program's inception, we've collected hundreds of pounds of food 和 supplies 和 thous和s of dollars for worthy recipients.
Non-profit 和 charity organizations do exceptional work throughout central 和 northern Florida. They're tireless efforts to help others inspire us at FCU. That's why we regularly offers them financial support through both direct sponsorship 和 event funding. Recent recipients include:
- Local youth sports teams
- The March of Dimes
- The American Cancer Society's Relay for Life
- Holiday events like Fanfares 和 Fireworks in 盖恩斯维尔
- 社区 staples like the Strawberry Festival in 斯达克
- Chamber of Commerce events.
- See upcoming FCU-sponsored events.
Florida Credit Union was founded in 1954 as the Alachua County Teacher’s Credit Union. 从那时起, we've maintained a strong connection to local schools 和 education-based organizations. In addition to sponsoring school sports teams, here are two of our ongoing efforts:
- FCU representatives visit nearly 100 schools across the region annually during “FCU’s Back-to-School Teacher Appreciation” period. They provide breakfast or lunch 和 goody bags to faculty 和 staff, present a monetary donation to each school, 和 answer questions about the credit union.
- FCU supports local students with three scholarship opportunities 每年. 他们是博士. 约翰·C. Rawls Scholarship Fund; the Servin-Ellis Scholarship Fund; 和 the Buchholz Academy of Finance Scholarship. Awards are based on student scholastic records, future potential, character, 和 financial need.
