The Southeastern Credit Union Foundation values the partnership of Georgia United Credit Union. Your support plays a vital role in our efforts to promote financial education initiatives, offer scholarships and grants to assist credit union employees with the training they need to achieve professional excellence, provide financial relief for credit union staff and volunteers when disaster strikes, and support credit unions in achieving their own community development objectives. Words alone can’t express how appreciative we are!
