Illuminating Change

Email for Information

Illuminating Change is Member First Credit Union’s monthly focus on local nonprofits. Each month, we spotlight a different nonprofit organization that is making a significant impact in our community. We share their stories, achievements, and the challenges they face. This initiative aims to raise awareness about these vital entities, bringing them into the spotlight they deserve.

Enriching the community has been the cornerstone of MFCU’s mission since its inception. For decades, our credit union has strived to go beyond just providing financial services to our members. We believe that credit unions exist to serve and uplift the communities they are a part of.

Why Local Nonprofits Matter

Local nonprofits are the unsung heroes of our community. They work tirelessly to address critical social issues, support vulnerable populations, protect the environment, promote education, and much more. Despite their immense contributions, they often struggle to gain the recognition and resources they deserve. At MFCU, we believe it's time to change that narrative.

If you happen to pass by our headquarters during the evenings, you might notice something special happening on the third floor. We have dedicated our building's facade to show our support for the featured nonprofit of the month. The lights on the third floor will change color, symbolizing our commitment to the cause and the community.

Together, We Can Make a Difference
