CARING FOR OUR COMMUNITY
People helping people
Caring for Our Community
Making a differenceWe’re driven by the credit union philosophy of “people helping people,” and supporting our local community brings this to life in important ways. Through volunteering, partnering with local non-profits, developing financial education programs, and providing financial support for causes that impact our communities, Advantis strives to enrich and strengthen the communities our members and employees call home.
Our employee-managed Community Involvement Committee provides donations and organizes monthly group-volunteer opportunities throughout the year to help our employees connect with local non-profits, and share their skills and passions. Learn more about Advantis in the community
Personal Volunteer Hours
We encourage our employees to volunteer for projects that are important to them personally, and we provide full time employees with eight hours of paid time annually to volunteer. Employees can use these hours in support of nonprofit organizations or by volunteering at a K-12 school.
The Charitable Match Program is just one of the ways that we reward the generosity of our employees. When an employee donates to an eligible non-profit organization, we proudly match their charitable gift, up to $100 annually.
