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

The Georgia United Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization committed to improving the quality of life for children and families in the communities we serve. Our Foundation partners with Georgia United Credit Union team members and volunteers to fund and deliver impactful programs across the state including:
