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.
Huskies Robotics Team

The kids at Atlanta High School need all the help they can get to go as far as they can to get caught up to the technology levels of bigger schools and even look toward the future, and provide something they can actually look forward to in school and beyond!
Tenderfoot 4H club
Posted By: Kelly (August 2, 2018)
Tenderfoot club is ran by Julia Fish and Julia takes in the kids who struggle in life at home, friendships, ect she never turns away a child. She don’t ask for any help, she holds down two jobs to keep the up keep on the animals ( mostly horses) so the kids can lean to take care of them and to learn to respect them and eventually ride them. Show them and compete with them. Most of the children involved wouldn’t have anything else to be a part of because they feel uncomfortable around more advanced groups but with Julia everyone is treated like family and taught by a wonderful young lady who has a heart of gold.
Huskies Robotics 7244

This is the 2nd year for our robotics team. We did very well last year making it all the way to the state competition. We received a large grant from the state last year to help get the team start up, but must now rely on donations and sponsors to fund our team. Any money we receive will be used for travel expenses and additional parts and supplies for our robot. We have a small team with 11 students and one very dedicated mentor. The robotics team has given students who are not athletic or in the band a way to belong to a team and gives them a sense of belonging and a real connection to the school. Thank you for considering our team for your summer give away!
The Breakfast Program at St. Andrew's
Posted By: Morgan Battle (August 2, 2018)
The Breakfast Program has been serving a free hot breakfast to anyone in need every single day, 365 days a year, since August of 1982. I am nominating the breakfast in honor of their 36th anniversary this month. The breakfast serves close to one hundred people each morning and the numbers are increasing. Most of the individuals who eat breakfast are experiencing homelessness or are members of the "working poor." Inside the breakfast program they find nourishment, but they also find a community of fellow patrons and volunteers who get to know each other each morning and form a real community. A community of people who would not know one another if not for this meal each day. They are an integral part of the Ann Arbor community.
Northville Historical Society
Posted By: Bob Sochacki (August 1, 2018)
As the fall season quickly approaches Northville, the Northville Historical Society is preparing a community wide educational and fun family event at Mill Race Historical Village, "Halloween Hysteria". Festivities are designed for to the youth of the community, including tweens and teens that search for an outlet to enjoy the company of friends and family in a festive outdoor setting. Creative interactive historical vignettes are planned throughout the village, while teaching some of the history of the Halloween festivities. The society relies upon donations and volunteers to offer quality educational programs and events based upon regional Northville heritage. The passion of our volunteers to share their talents and love of history with the youth of our community continues year round. It does take an historical village, Mill Race Historical Village, to maintain this community spirit of involvement.
