A POWERFUL FORCE FOR CHANGE:
For more than 68 years, Travis Credit Union has been committed to helping people live better. Through financial education, financial literacy and financial advocacy we have assisted countless families and individuals get out of debt, improve credit scores and purchase needed transportation to get to and from work. And that’s just the start.
We’ve also helped people understand the real estate process and buy a home they can finally call their own. Through our Mary Keith Duff Memorial Scholarship program, we’ve had a front row seat to watch college dreams come true for our members. We’ve taught thousands of young people how to budget their money and, become financially responsible and independent through our MAD City Money teen financial workshops.
Now, with our newly formed Travis Credit Union Foundation (a 501c3 nonprofit corporation), we can do more!
Authentic community impact
Money has become a taboo topic, which has led many to suffer from financial illiteracy. Consider these statistics:
Without focused effort and resources that address the root of the problem rather than the symptom, the financial burden felt by these individuals eventually will adversely affect entire communities and generations to come.
We have an opportunity to do something about it, and our efforts will be a powerful force for change in the communities. Through the TCU Foundation, we will create an authentic community impact and make a lasting difference.
More resources for more outreach
As a not-for-profit credit union, our ability to do this important work is contingent on available funds generated through Travis Credit Union. Establishing the TCU Foundation as a legal entity in its own right allows us to raise and accumulate more resources to fund our Awesome Cause of financial education, financial literacy and financial advocacy.
As a nonprofit 501c3 corporation, the TCU Foundation is eligible for public and private grants. Our members, employees and supporters can make tax-free contributions that go directly back to the people and communities they love.
