Always here and helping
Community investment, initiatives & partnerships
WCU Community Fund
One of the ways we help build a better, brighter, & stronger community is through our Community Fund. The fund was established by our Board of Directors to fund projects and initiatives that have a long-lasting, far-reaching positive impact within our local communities. Typically, we allocate 1% of the Credit Union’s profits to the WCU Community Fund each year. That means we allocated just under $60,000 in 2022!
Donations & Sponsorships
We support a range of local events, fundraisers, festivals, celebrations and ceremonies that encourage community connections, nurture pride and celebrate diversity.
Sponsorships for these initiatives typically range from $250 to $2,000. Connect with us through our branch or marketing team to learn more and explore partnership opportunities. You can reach us at 306-842-6641 or by email.
Pursuing a post-secondary education takes a hard work, dedication and a considerable financial commitment. We are proud to be able to support local youth and their efforts through our Scrap the App Scholarship program. Each student has an equal opportunity to win one of five $1,000 scholarships because we pick our winners randomly. That's why there's no application, transcripts or references required. If you're pursuing an education, we believe you should have equal opportunity to a helping hand up.
We encourage and reward volunteerism throughout our organization. In fact, it's an important component of our in our culture code and variable incentive plan.
We also offer staff-directed donations! Our employees love that each year they can choose a cause close to their heart and the credit union will donate $50 on their behalf.
Denim for Donations
Each and every Friday, you'll see our staff in jeans and purple shirt. That means they've made a donation to a local community group for that perk!
So we ask you, do these jeans make our credit union look good?
Financial Literacy – Each One, Teach One
An important component of building financial resilience is the ability to understand and use financial information to make appropriate choices. That’s why our staff volunteer to deliver workshops on money management topics such as basic banking, understanding credit, fraud prevention and more.
