Community Involvement & Support
As a locally owned organization, Crosstown Civic Credit Union (CCCU) cares deeply about giving back to the communities in which we live and serve. Recognizing our responsibility to contribute to the health and quality of life in our community, we support many local charitable and non-profit organizations and causes.
Our organization provides a broad base of support to various community events, health & wellness initiatives, educational programs, youth, the environment, and arts & culture. We provide support to non-profits, registered charities and cooperatives through donations, sponsorships and volunteering. We encourage and enable our staff to contribute to our community through individual and company volunteering opportunities.
