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.
