“People helping people” is a foundation that all credit unions are built upon. At Michigan Schools and Government Credit Union, this philosophy doesn’t just apply to our members; our team members also reach beyond office doors and immerse themselves in the communities they serve. From sponsoring charity events to financially educating our neighbors, MSGCU is proud to offer its support.
It's a total team effort
To celebrate more than 60 years of service, each MSGCU branch donates time and resources to help a non-profit group or organization within their community as part of our Giving Back program.
MSGCU is dedicated to increasing the financial knowledge of both our members and the communities we serve. Our Consumer Education Team conducts a variety of workshops, classroom presentations and community events to promote financial wellbeing for all age groups.
Community and Business Sponsorships
The Credit Union often provides financial support to community initiatives. Through paid sponsorships and/or gifts-in-kind, the Credit Union provides the support needed while taking advantage of the advertising opportunities that are offered in exchange.
Classroom Cash Grants
In a continuing effort to support educators in the community, MSGCU is proud to offer grants totaling more than $45,000 to fund innovative classroom projects through our Classroom Cash Grant program each year.
As a Credit Union rooted in education, we believe that people should be afforded the opportunity to better themselves through continued education. Therefore, each year MSGCU offers five scholarship programs to over 30 students totaling more than $80,000.
Team Member Volunteer Efforts
MSGCU’s dedication to excellence expands beyond our offices. Team members honor the values and core competencies held by the Credit Union through their volunteer efforts. In 2017, team members volunteered at approximately 130 local organizations, donating more than 2,200 hours of their time.
