Giving back to the community is a commitment that TTCU Federal Credit Union made over 85 years ago. It’s part of the credit union philosophy of people helping people. Founded in 2020, the TTCU Cares Foundation brings that vision to life in a new way. Funded by donations from TTCU members, employees and the local community, the Foundation’s investments will make a difference in the areas of education, community impact and human services.  

Our Vision

Enriching members’ communities by supporting their educators and charitable organizations. 

Our Mission

To invest in our community, educators and charitable partners through fundraising and grants. 

Funding Priorities

Education

We support educators and are dedicated to removing financial barriers to educators’ success in and outside of the classroom. Education is part of our history. TTCU Federal Credit Union was founded by teachers to help other teachers through the great depression. Helping educators is not just a passion for us, it’s in our DNA. 

Teacher Grants

Teachers invest their time and energy every day in helping our youngest citizens learn and succeed. The TTCU Cares Foundation honors that work by providing help to ensure our educators have a chance to succeed financially, too. That’s why the Foundation started a program to help educators.

More information coming soon.


Community Betterment

We support programs that improve the quality of life in our members’ communities.

We believe in the power of investing back in the communities that have chosen to invest in us through credit union membership. After all, they’re our home, too.
