DCUC gives back to military and credit union organizations

WASHINGTON, DC (January 4, 2022) — To close out another successful year, DCUC donated an additional $98,000 to military and credit union organizations.

“DCUC’s mission is to Serve Those Who Serve Our Country, and as the year ends, we are proud to be able to give back to our industry partners and organizations that serve the military community,” said Anthony Hernandez, DCUC President/CEO. “Just as our member credit unions give back to their communities, it is important for us to give back to ours. This year, DCUC focused its year-end contributions on causes that are closest to military families: wounded warriors, military spouse employment, childcare, and military child education.”

The organizations that DCUC chose to support this year do outstanding work and have a tremendous impact in the credit union industry and on our military and veteran communities. DCUC is proud to be able to donate additional funds to help these organizations further their missions.

These donations are possible thanks to DCUC’s partial ownership of the Armed Forces Financial Network (AFFN) and their commitment to “Serving Our Troops One Transaction at a Time.”

Organizations receiving donations include:

• America’s Credit Union Museum

• The Cooperative Trust

• The National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF)

• The World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU)

• The Military Spouse Advocacy Network (MSAN)

• Team Tinker Home Away from Home
