Virginia Credit Union’s commitment to our communities

At Virginia Credit Union, we put a priority on our members’ financial success. Through financial education, transparent practices, and trustworthy advice, we work hard to be different than a typical bank.

But, financial success is more than just feeling confident about your money, it’s having the means to live a healthy and secure life. An essential part of finding that sense of security? Ensuring the overall health of our shared community. By focusing our support on integral initiatives within our state (like building communities, supporting the next generation, and promoting food security), we’re better as a whole.

Becoming a VACU member is more than finding great rates and lower fees. It’s joining an organization that has the greater local community in mind. Bettering our community for our members and beyond, we got you.

Impact and outreach

Under the direction of an employee-run engagement committee, we focus on issues that our members and employees both identify as important to the long-term benefit of communities across the Commonwealth. Consider these numbers for 2023:

 Nearly $2 million contributed to charitable causes

 90,000 youth and adults who participated in financial education classes, workshops and video resources gaining knowledge and skills in money management

 $150,000 in college scholarships to student members of VACU

 $45,000 to Feed More and other local food banks to meet immediate needs and address food insecurity in our region
