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?

Northville Art House
Posted By: Abigail Wright-Geddes (June 14, 2017)
The Northville Art House is focused on bringing art and culture to the community. We do this through classes, monthly free art exhibits, and the annual Arts & Acts festival in downtown Northville! In the past year we have taught classes to over 600 kids, teens, and adults in the community, welcomed over 1,000 people to our exhibits and brought close to 20,000 people to the annual Arts & Acts festival. If we won the $1,000 we would use that money to help buy new supplies for our After School Art program that is in three Northville elementary schools. Through the After School Art program we are able to reach new generations of artists and help them grow!
Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund

The mission of the Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund™ (FWSF) is to support Michigan-based soldiers who serve and protect our country.
This is a non-profit, non-partisan 501(c) (3) organization. Members do not receive any financial compensation for their efforts. The FWSF is an all-volunteer effort, supporting our armed forces. It helps injured soldiers pay their living expenses, and provide assistance to the families of the fallen.
Founded in 2006, the organization is dedicated to supporting Michigan-based soldiers and their families. Proceeds from corporate and private donations as well as events are used to support the organization's mission. The organization is wholly staffed by business people and volunteers who believe in giving back to our armed forces and their families.

Thank you for considering supporting Winning Futures, a non-profit, mentoring organization that works through public schools pairing community professionals with high school students to help them prepare for their future. The WF mantra is 'ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING'. I became involved with this organization when the company I work for, Phillips Service Industries, Inc., became a sponsor a few years ago. For one class hour a week, I meet with the same students for the school year and assist them in putting together a strategic plan for their future. To date I have met with 7 young women whose future is bright! Not only have they learned the WF secrets to success, they are smart, filled with integrity, are community minded, caring, and kind individuals. Our communities need more people like ‘my girls’!
Believe in 3 campaign for Tri Point Church of God
Posted By: Debbie Ames (June 14, 2017)
The Believe in 3 campaign is a campaign to lessen the debt of our community orientated church ministries. We have a mortgage that we believe can be paid off in 3 years or less! We want to serve the community in more ways by enabling the dollars designated for mortgage payments towards our youth ministries, our benevolence assistance as well as our other missions.
Plymouth Historical Museum
Posted By: Sherrie Brindley (June 14, 2017)
For all of 2017, the Plymouth Historical Museum is celebrating Plymouth's 150th anniversary.
Our mission is to preserve and share Plymouth's history with local families--with a special emphasis on school field trips. The museum hosts more than 1,000 children per year to learn about our community through presentations by retired school teachers. Our most popular curriculum based education programs are: the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln and the Plymouth Timeline.
Winning $1,000 would help us in the preservation of precious artifacts from Plymouth's past as well as fund the operation of the museum which receives no public funding.
