Victory Junction

The credit unions in the Carolinas have a rich history with Victory Junction, a summer camp dedicated to challenging children who have a serious medical condition to try things they never imagined possible. Campers are welcomed from all over the country and attend FREE of charge, thanks to many generous supporters. The Carolinas Credit Union Foundation remains one of the camp’s top corporate supporters. Over the last two decades, credit unions in the Carolinas have supported Victory Junction to the tune of more than $4 million with funding for two cabins, four medical units, revamping of its spiritual center and many more enhancements to its camp as noted in the timeline below. The most notable fundraising is done each year at CUNA Mutual Group’s Carolinas Cup golf tournament, which marked its 15th Anniversary in 2019.

In 2015, the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation made a tremendous pledge, the largest in its history. With a $900,000 commitment from the Foundation though 2019, Victory Junction had the ability to deliver its camp experience year-around to local children’s hospitals and Ronald McDonald Houses in the Carolinas though the Reach Program, touching the lives of nearly 35,000! During that 5-year Reach partnership, 100s of credit union employees volunteered their time in Ronald McDonald Houses and local children’s hospitals to deliver smiles to families and children.

Credit union employees can still volunteer time and resources with assembling supplies for the Reach Program. For more information, please email [email protected].
