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 - Back to School Rally

Posted By: Tracey Stevenson (August 6, 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. Thank you in advance for your support and contribution.

New School High

Posted By: Cynthia Burnstein (August 6, 2018)
New School High is a small, innovative, teacher-led public school academy that is dedicated to academic excellence, collaboration, creativity and community engagement. We know that students learn best by doing. This year our new theater program will begin with a student production Shakespeare. If New School High were to be selected for CFCU's generous grant, our students will have the funds they need to create the sets, costuming, props for their production. Thank you for your support of the arts in our public schools!

Sleep in Heavenly Peace

Posted By: Melissa Carlson (August 5, 2018)
All children deserve a safe, comfortable place to lay their heads. In the US, too many boys and girls go without a bed—or even a pillow—to sleep on. These children end up sleeping on couches, blankets, and even floors. This can affect their happiness and their health.

That’s where Sleep in Heavenly Peace comes in. We’re a group of volunteers dedicated to building, assembling and delivering top-notch bunk beds to children and families in need.

ALS of Michigan

Posted By: Jim Gioia (August 3, 2018)
Where do you begin when the lives of the people closest to you struggle with such a debilitating disease… the words are hard to come by. So I will turn to the people at ALS of Michigan. These people are truly bright lights of comfort and compassion. They tirelessly work for the afflicted, providing information, resources both physical and emotional, and a shoulder if ever needed.
We have been the beneficiaries of their mission. Free access to wheelchairs, transportation devices, breathing devices, communicating devices, eating devices, cleaning and care devices… you can get the idea. They will do anything and everything they can to support the afflicted, the families, and the care givers. There is no monetary, social, or racial bias in their mission. These institutions and people who dedicate their life with purpose are invaluable to our society.
