About Us

Our Mission

The Georgia United Credit Union Foundation is committed to improving the quality of life for children and families in the communities we serve.

What is the Georgia United Foundation?

The Georgia United Foundation was incorporated in 2016 as a nonprofit corporation in the state of Georgia. In August 2017, the Internal Revenue Service approved the Foundation as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Our Foundation partners with Georgia United Credit Union team members and volunteers to fund and deliver impactful programs across the state.

What organizations does the Foundation support?

We support programs that improve the quality of life for children and families, support schools and advance financial literacy. Programs funded by the Foundation include School Crashers®, Junior Achievement®, Can Hunger, Wish Tree, annual Scholarship programs and Service Days. In addition to these programs, our Foundation continues to support our community as Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to impact Georgia. Visit our Community Impact page to see how.
Great service during this pandemic. Georgia United aides the community they serve with services like feeding the community, a toy drive during Christmas and more.

We are beyond excited for our students at New Hope Middle School to experience the new sensory room provided to us through the Georgia United Credit Union School Crashers grant. This unique classroom environment will enable a special population of our students to have their sensory needs met in various ways allowing for optimal success in the academic classrooms and fostering positive relationships with their peers. We are on the countdown to the first day of school and can not wait to let our students see our new sensory room!

Thanks to my Georgia United scholarship, I’m not only gaining academic knowledge from my classes at Mercer, I’m gaining insight into who I am and who I’ll be. My scholarship funds enabled me to complete a summer leadership development training in Maine which were the most rewarding and life-changing eight days of my life. My Georgia United scholarship is helping me learn exactly how I will change the world. I am eternally grateful for the confidence that the board showed in me last Spring.

Georgia United is very helpful to the community. I always see them giving back, helping young students who are in school and helping young families. Georgia United is a great credit union that I love.
