Credit Union Community

MIT Federal Credit Union is committed to helping our communities not only by providing valuable financial products and services, but also by extending the credit union's "people helping people" philosophy to multiple areas of life. Because we are entrusted with safeguarding our members' money, we are responsible to make prudent decisions regarding our corporate citizenship efforts. Requests for assistance must quantify the benefits the contributions will provide to the recipient(s) and the community in general; and must fall within one of the defined contribution categories:

  • Charitable Donations 
  • Scholarships — cash awards distributed throughout the educational system
  • Partnerships with Other Organizations
  • Financial Literacy — programs geared toward improving basic financial knowledge
