History and Purpose

The idea for the Foundation was created by credit union leaders who were seeking a meaningful way to give something back to a credit union system that provided much to them over the years and in 1993 the North Carolina Credit Union Foundation was formed. It grew to include the credit unions of South Carolina in 2001 and formally became the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation. Since its inception, the Foundation prides itself as a charitable organization dedicated to the embodiment of the “people helping people” philosophy of credit unions.

The Carolinas Credit Union Foundation has a rich heritage of doing great things across the two states. Traditionally, the Foundation has promoted large projects as part of its social responsibility efforts. Credit unions have raised dollars for Prevent Child Abuse, the Duke Pediatric Bone Marrow Center, the Levine Children’s Hospital and the Greenville Children’s Hospital. The most notable fundraising efforts are for Victory Junction, where credit union have invested more than $3,000,000 and serve as one of the largest corporate contributors. The Foundation is currently partnering with Victory Junction to power its new program Reach. Through the financial commitment of the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation, Victory Junction takes the magic of camp beyond its gates and bring specialized camp-style programming to children and families year round at hospitals and Ronald McDonald Houses in North and South Carolina.   

Other programs include awarding small credit union staff development grants and providing scholarship opportunities to North and South Carolina credit union members. To date, more than $1.25 million in scholarships have been granted to rising college students in the Carolinas. Additionally, the Foundation has awarded disaster relief grants to members, employees and communities throughout North and South Carolina. In some cases, the Foundation assists with credit union disaster relief needs in other states as well as in foreign countries, to assist in economic and social redevelopment.

The vision of the Foundation is to enrich the lives of children in the Carolinas. With the support of credit unions, their employees and their members coming together, the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation is making a lasting investment in families’ lives throughout our great states.

Current programs of the Foundation include:
