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?
Nominations will begin on June 1, 2018.

Team GUTS is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of the special needs community. Team GUTS provides one-on-one training, fitness classes, strength training and sports to children, teenagers and adults. No family will be turned away. Rather, we provide scholarships to families that are in need of financial assistance.
Team GUTS was started by Todd and Paul Turner and Todd's daughter who has Down syndrome and autism is the reason why Team GUTS was started. Todd realized there was nothing out there for those with special needs and why should they be forgotten.
Our athletes are special and they are near and dear to our hearts!

Ridge Wood Elementary

Our student leadership at Ridge Wood in reading to take it to the next level. We we use the grant funds to help create more possibilities with student leadership in presenting our morning news. An upgrade in equipment and improvement of some materials will help give more students the opportunities to use their leadership skills to help inform the school of news and events important to our school. Being able to work remotely for outdoor or events around the school will make it easier for students to take control of our announcements and include many more learning examples around our school. The money would be used to purchase items that would help us expand our production capabilities (wireless microphones, portable green screen, etc)
