Summer of Sharing Campaign
Community Financial Credit Union has been enhancing the lives of our members and our communities for over 65 years. The word “community” is not only in our name, but it is the core of what we do. We know that Community Financial would not exist without our members and the communities in which they live.
Strong business can only grow from a strong community that benefits everyone, which is why helping nonprofits, educational, and community groups is a part of our culture. We believe these groups have a tremendous impact on the communities we serve and it’s both our responsibility and pleasure to support them. We are committed to the communities where we do business and have devoted both time and money to help them succeed. Partnerships with local school districts, The Salvation Army, United Way and American Cancer Society are just a few of the ways we are making a difference.
To help build stronger communities, we are reaching out to our neighbors and asking for your help. Think about it.
What GOOD could you do with $1,000? What charity, community group or school group could use some extra funds?
Our Summer of Sharing Program has concluded for 2017.
This year we celebrated summer by choosing from the 262 stories submitted on this site and awarded 60 - $1,000 grants to organizations in Michigan*. Click the See button to view the charities, community groups and school programs we were able to support this year.
MIOCA Teal Sister Support Network
Posted By: Sonia Culver (July 22, 2017)
The Michigan Ovarian Cancer Alliance (MIOCA) strives to save women's lives by promoting the early detection of ovarian cancer and improved treatment outcomes. I am a four year survivor and a member of the Teal Sisters Support Network in Ann Arbor, one of several support groups in Michigan sponsored by MIOCA. This donation would help defray the cost of our monthly support pot-luck dinner location and monthly newsletter, which helps to to keep members connected, especially those who are in treatment and cannot attend meetings on a regular basis, and also allow us to reach out to the newly diagnosed. Most women are diagnosed in the late stage and support is so important to them at this desvistating time. Please help us spread support to the women fighting this disease by considering Teal Sisters in your Summer of Sharing. Thank you!

Foster Closet of Michigan
Posted By: Dawn Wisusik (July 21, 2017)
My sister and her husband spent a small fortune on IVF trying to get pregnant and when every time failed they decided on fostering and eventually adopting. Something that seems to be less common nowadays. This program has helped those special people with the huge hearts willing to save a child from sad circumstances. I think the woman my sister deals with is an angel and from what she tells me about her, I don't see how any one can not see her wings.

Allison Johnson really takes pride in the job she's doing to help children who may have nothing when they come into the foster care system. She personally goes through every item to make sure all the clothes are in EUC.
I first heard about the foster closet when I saw a poster in an office of an adoption agency. Then,our church did am outreach project and it was for the foster closet western Wayne county branch. I found out that Allison also attended the church. I've donated my time to help sort and help her in anyway.
She is a sweet person who takes great pride in what she does. I pray she's able to receive the $1000,she'll put it to good use for the children in foster care.
