Supporting Our Nonprofits

loading...Nonprofit groups are vital to the success of any community. The services provided by nonprofits can range from providing cultural experiences, to assisting the most vulnerable members of the community, to bolstering the education of students. They have a huge impact on the communities we serve and it is both our responsibility and pleasure to help support those groups.

Helping nonprofits is part of our culture; therefore, over the course of 2011, Community Financial donated funds to many nonprofit groups engaging with our communities.

Summer of Sharing:

During the summer, we asked nonprofits and charity groups “What GOOD could you do with $1,060?” As the answers rolled in, we committed to giving away $1,060 every weekday for 60 days. Charities along with community and school groups were nominated online at, and winners were announced over the 60 days of summer.


Season of Giving:

In December, we announced our Season of Giving program, during which $50,000 was donated to nonprofit organizations across the state. With all the work these groups do throughout the year, we wanted to reach out and thank them during the holiday season.

Combined, the Summer of Sharing and Season of Giving initiative resulted in donations of over $100,000 for nonprofit groups in and around Plymouth, Canton, Northville, Novi, Gaylord, Hillman and Lewiston.

As a community-focused credit union, we are committed to supporting the communities in which our members live and work. We have been fulfilling that responsibility for over 60 years and look forward to continuing to do so well into the future.
