People Helping People
Be. The. Good.
Doing good in the community and being socially responsible are both important to Arsenal Credit Union, and even though we are not a charity, our care for people goes beyond those who do business with us. It applies to all people.
That’s how many hours our employees volunteered from 2013 through 2019 toward improving our community on behalf of the credit union. In 2019 alone, employees volunteered 1,292 hours, which equals about $32,856, according to Independent Sector’s estimated value of volunteer time.
We’ve taught a lot of young people in the classroom about personal finance – reaching 8,826 students through 362 presentations over the past six years.
Upon request, our youth financial education specialist and certified educator in personal finance (CEPF), Jenny Remes, will present at local schools. As a 14-year program veteran, Jenny engages students in the responsibility of saving, investing, managing credit and keeping money safe and secure with presentations that can be customized to grade level, needs and curriculum.
We help deliver high quality, unbiased, digital financial education to students at local high schools in partnership with EverFi, Inc. We also can enhance any teaching curriculum by providing free classroom materials, such as student workbooks and activities certified by the National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE).
Since 2004, we have earned eight Alphonse Desjardins Awards at the state level for our youth financial education efforts and one for our adult education program.
Arsenal Community Impact Fund
We offer grants to charitable organizations who help the communities we serve. We’re also able to help with smaller donations, volunteer time and crowdfunding.
