Thumbs Up for Charity!

Congratulations to Our Winners!

Community Financial Credit Union is pleased to announce the winners of our “Thumbs Up for Charity” program.  Throughout April 2021, we asked the community to nominate nonprofits that make an impact. We then invited the public to vote for the five finalists.

First Place Winner- $10,000

New Hope Center for Grief Support received the most votes and will receive the $10,000 grand prize! New Hope Center for Grief Support in Northville, MI is dedicated to bringing hope, healing, and new beginnings to adults and children grieving the death of a loved one. They have been a lifeline to people in the community who have suffered profound loss in the midst of the pandemic, and offer emotional support in a time of great personal stress, sorrow, and upheaval. Their services are free and reflect a generosity of spirit in community service that sets an example of helping people in a time of need. Learn more at
