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.

About the 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 we 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.

Award-winning community service

The Georgia United Foundation has been honored to receive recognition for excellence in our community service programming from state, national and international organizations over the years. We recently won the Communitas Awards in 2021, an international awards competition focusing on an organization's acts of service. Georgia United team members are given up to three workdays to volunteer for local schools and charitable organizations and we are grateful that many of them choose to volunteer for the foundation's School Crashers, Junior Achievement and “Be the Difference” service days. 

We have been awarded first place in the Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility & Community Service Award for the State of Georgia over 25 times and our School Crashers program has received the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Marketing & Business Development Council’s Diamond Award nationally six times.

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.
