Community Impact

Our philosophy of “people helping people” can be seen in our daily interactions with members or serving our local community.

Supporting Our Local Communities

Georgia United Credit Union takes great pride in being an active and responsible member of the communities we serve. Every year we support events and programs that focus on strengthening our school systems, financial literacy and helping our communities.


All Georgia United team members are given three paid volunteer days each year to serve at credit union-sponsored programs or for a charitable organization of their choice. Don’t be surprised to find our team members volunteering at a local elementary school career day or rolling up their sleeves for service organizations.

Financial Education

We are passionate about furthering financial literacy in our communities. Our team members can be found hosting educational seminars—both online and in person—to help teach important financial skills like money management, budgeting, investing and more. If you need a speaker for your community group, school or business, we'd love to connect with you.

More through our foundation

Nominations Open for Georgia United Foundation’s 2023 School Crashers Program

Feb 1, 2023

DULUTH, GA  – Now through February 28, nominate a deserving school for a School Crashers facility makeover grant and help make a difference in the lives of Georgia children and school system teachers and staff. 

For a decade, Georgia United Foundation has partnered with Georgia United Credit Union to offer its School Crashers program to accredited K – 12 schools in Georgia, enhancing the learning environments at 63 schools with projects valued collectively at $1.8 million and positively impacting more than 43,000 students and almost 5,000 faculty and staff. 

As education districts continue to prioritize the mental health and holistic well-being of students and teachers, this year’s School Crashers program focuses on upgrading on-campus interior spaces that will help fulfill those needs. 

“If your school has been waiting for a special career and counseling area, a relaxing retreat space for those hard-working teachers or a sensory room for students to decompress, this could be your year,” said Kim Wall, Georgia United’s director of community development.  

The schools with the most compelling stories (including a photo illustrating the need for facility improvements) may be selected as a School Crashers grant recipient in March. Requests for projects that include electrical, structural or plumbing enhancements will not be considered. 

Georgia United Foundation funds School Crashers with the support of Georgia United Credit Union, donor partners and generous sponsors. The improvement projects are completed by Georgia United team members, community partners, sponsors and volunteers.
