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.

Michigan Elks Charitable Grant Fund
Posted By: Dennis R. White (August 8, 2018)
We are a 501 c3 organization. We help Special Needs students further their education after high school by granting them $2,000.00 a year renewable for up to 3 more years. We at present have 25 young adults in our program most of which are in your service area. They can attend a vocational, trade school or any accredited school beyond high school. These young adults do not need to be associated with the Elks. This program is open to every graduating senior. We hope to help these young adults to become Self Reliant, Self Respecting citizens in their communities. We provide them with Hope for their future. When talking with them, they do not know what to do after high school Because they don't have the funds or grades to pursue a career. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Friday Fill-Up provides weekend meals to children who are struggling with food insecurity. Each backpack includes 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 3 snacks, fruit cups, vegetable cups, and a larger meal for the family. Currently we are partnered with a school that has a 92% free/reduced lunch population and are committed to serve 50 kids each weekend. We want to make sure these kids have enough to eat over the weekend so that each week they come to school ready to learn and grow. $1000 would feed the 50 kids we currently supply with backpacks for a month.
PAASN/Parents of African American Students in Novi
Posted By: Paula Henry (August 6, 2018)
Parents of African American Students in Novi is a small parent community organization that supports not only African American Students in Novi, but ALL students who need academic and/or social support in the Novi school district. We work collaboratively with Novi Schools Community District and the Novi Educational Fund to provide a Saturday tutoring program supporting students in Math and Reading and monthly outreach programs that both educate and enrich the Novi community. We also support student needs through providing school supplies, giving out academic scholarships, bringing in speakers and provide small stipends for tutors. To be a recipient of this program would truly be a blessing for PAASN to help support African American students as well as ALL students in the Novi school district. Thank you so very much!
