CARING FOR OUR COMMUNITY
People helping people
Caring for Our Community
A world of difference, right here at homeWe’re driven by the credit union philosophy of “people helping people,” and supporting our local community brings this to life in crucial ways. With our volunteering, nonprofit partnerships, financial education programs, and donations to causes that enrich our communities, we help strengthen the places our members and employees call home.
Our employee-managed Community Involvement Committee provides donations and organizes monthly volunteer opportunities that enable groups of employees to share their skills and passions as they connect with local nonprofits. 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.
Our 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.
