Delta Community Invests in Financial Education, Family Health & Human Services

    Atlanta Business Chronicle

    Delta Community Credit Union (www.DeltaCommunityCU.com), Georgia's largest credit union with more than $5 billion in assets, invested $580,000 in 2016 in the communities it serves. Schools, chambers of commerce, non-profit groups, industry partners and civic organizations are among the groups benefitting from the Credit Union's sponsorships and charitable giving.

    The Delta Community Philanthropic fund granted $80,000 to 17 charitable organizations which provide financial education and health and human services support to 274,000 people throughout metro Atlanta.

    More than $143,000 was invested in financial literacy and education, including classes offered through the Credit Union's Financial Education Center (FEC). Introduced in mid-2016, the FEC offers free workshops including Budgeting, Financial Planning for Women, First-Time Home Buying and more.

    Employees raised more than $100,000 for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, which in 2016 named a Trauma Room at Scottish Rite Hospital for Delta Community in honor of the Credit Union's $2 million in contributions over the last 17 years.
