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.

Our Summer of Sharing Program has concluded for 2018.

This summer we chose from 266 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.

El Bethel Baptist Church

Posted By: Tracey Stevenson (August 22, 2018)
El Bethel Baptist Church is hosting its Annual Back to School Rally. Our goal is to provide 500 + school supplied book bags to our church families and Redford Township community. We will also be providing free haircuts, manicures, flu shots, and dental services to the children. We have recently adopted Beech Elementary in Redford Township and would like to be a blessing to this school. With this financial contribution of $1, 000 I am certain that we will be able to provide and richly bless the children in our community and ensure that they are prepared to return to school in the Fall of 2018. The event will be held this Sunday, August 26th at Handy Park in Redford, MI. Thank you in advance for your support and contribution.

NPAAS

We are NPAAS, Northville Parents of African American Students, a non-charitable organization in Northville Township. NPAAS offers "Tutoring of Math and Reading" for a very low cost to families in the Northville District. The $10 fee for 6 weeks tutoring sessions helps us provide snacks and materials for the children. We implemented our Winter and Spring tutoring sessions this year (2018), providing snacks and learning resources to students at our Northville Public Library. We engaged our community through our Annual April "Sunday Funday" Event. We provided valuable social media awareness information, we illustrated table etiquette and showed everyone how to eat healthy by Juicing fruits and vegetables. We were able to show parents and children valuable information. We will host an August 25th "Big Block Party" at Meads Mills Middle School. We will help kids prepare for school with a backpack with supplies give-away, food, manicures and haircuts.

Good News Gang

Posted By: Evelyn Ruiz (August 22, 2018)
Since 1989, the GNG has been committed to equipping the children of Detroit for victory in life and to become leaders of the next generation. Through their Saturday program, tutoring, creative arts, basketball, and home visits, they make a real difference in the lives of boys and girls growing up in some of the roughest circumstances of Detroit. While their Saturday services are the heartbeat of their ministry, they also meet some of the physical, educational, and emotional needs of the children as well. They believe that those are best met in the context of being actively involved in a child's daily life. The Saturday Services are designed to break destructive cycles and give children the hope they need to create a new path for their lives, founded on the life-changing power of the Gospel. Ward Church (Northville) supports this ministry.

Community Assistance Foundation

Posted By: Karen SkszekMida (August 21, 2018)

CAF5 is a non-profit organization that works to assist families and children in need within the communities served by the 34th District Court. Those communities are Belleville, Huron, Romulus, Sumpter and Van Buren. CAF5 steps in to provide assistance only when other resources are not available to fill a need. One of our projects is to provide prescription glasses to children whose parents do not have vision coverage and the child is in need of glasses. The most recent project was to provide assistance to a single mother with four children - the oldest has been diagnosed with soft tissue cancer. We did a fundraiser to help this family with rent and utility payments. CAF5 works with school principals and social workers to identify children in need. We provide resources and/or financial assistance to families with desperate medical or financial concerns.
