Community Involvement

We've made it our mission to lend a helping hand.

Caring is one of the things we do best.

We donate money, we volunteer our time, and we give from the heart.

Each year, Ventura County Credit Union participates in more than 400 community events.

Here are just a few of the ways we support the Ventura County community:

The Foundation of VCCU

To facilitate efforts to provide financial assistance and education to our community, we formed The Foundation of Ventura County Credit Union, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, in 2015. The Foundation focuses on helping the underserved, beautifying and preserving our environment, and promoting health and well-being.

CommUNITY Giving Program

By nature, VCCU is a philanthropic organization. In recent years, we've provided over a half-million dollars, thousands of pounds of food, and school supplies to charitable organizations through our corporate giving and in-branch fundraisers. We also offer each of our staff members compensation for up to 40 hours per year of volunteer time.

Financial Education

VCCU partners with academic institutions, businesses, and other local organizations to host workshops and webinars on key topics. These include everything from money management and fraud prevention to buying a home and understanding credit scores. If you're interested in financial education for your organization, please contact us about our Financial Education Program.

Hispanic/Immigrant Outreach

Working with organizations such as the Mixteco/Indígena Community Organizing Project (MICOP) and the Consulate of Mexico, VCCU has developed an outreach program for Hispanic communities, agricultural companies and community partners. Free financial services, answer financial questions, and provide additional assistance as needed. For our commitment, VCCU in 2017 received the Juntos Avanzamos, “Together We Advance” designation from the National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions.

Joining the credit union was my best choice; I love the welcoming atmosphere and the warm greetings I get from all the employees!
