First Community Credit Union strongly believes in giving back to the communities that support us as a local credit union.

  • Educational programs, particularly those focused on Financial Literacy

  • Community/civic organizations
  • Economic development
  • Environmental causes
  • And other programs that enrich the quality of life in our local communities

  • Beloit, WI
  • Janesville, WI
  • Monroe, WI

FirstCCU Employees Making a Difference

Our staff knows that writing a check isn't always enough to make an impact, so they are out in our local communities volunteering their time and effort. In 2017, our staff spent more than 475 hours volunteering.  What's more, is that many of those hours took place in their spare time.  We can't thank our staff enough for the positive contributions they make in our communities.

Donations & Sponsorship Requests

First Community Credit Union receives hundreds of sponsorship requests each year from a wide range of organizations. Unfortunately it is impossible for us to contribute to every cause. Although we respect and admire such worthy projects, we must limit our support to levels that are responsible, sustainable, and consistent with our mission to improve the financial well-being of our members.  We will gladly respond to requests for support in accordance with our Community Commitment policy.  Organizations asking for support must meet the following criteria:

·   Defined as a nonprofit organization

·   Organizations or events centered in southern Wisconsin or Northern Illinois that directly affect the communities in our service area

·   Projects or programs whose interests and goals are consistent with those of FirstCCU

·   Requests from our members will be given priority over requests by non-members

Although there are many worthy causes out there that FirstCCU can support, we will not contribute to or sponsor:

  • Political campaigns/parties
  • Religious organizations
  • Fraternal or social clubs
  • Individuals
  • Trips, travel, or cultural exchange programs
  • Organizations/events that discriminate against any persons or organization with respect to their race, religion, color, sex, age, national origin, gender, height, weight, medical condition, marital status, sexual orientation, veteran status, disability, or any other legally protected status.

If your organization is seeking support, please submit a formal written request to your nearest branch location.
