GECU Cares

It feels good to give back. We are passionate about the communities we serve and make special effort to volunteer our time to local organizations.

GECU Cares
about our community

  • Prioritizing our community
  • Offering our time
  • Making a positive impact

Remaining true to the credit union philosophy of "People Helping People," we strive to create a positive environment for our members, team members, and the communities we serve. That’s why we created GECU Cares. It’s our way of giving back and investing our time into the Greater Cincinnati community.

Our 2024 Giveback Partners

To deepen our commitment to the community even further,  we created a program called Giveback Partners. Each year,  three local nonprofit organizations that mirror our philosophy of "People Helping People" are selected and we invest in them through financial contributions, volunteer manpower, and other opportunities.

Do Good Program

Our Do Good program was created to encourage GECU team members to find their passion, remain involved in the community, and just Do Good! Team members have the opportunity to volunteer their time and talents to local organizations, during work hours and on their own time.

Giveback Crew

Each month, we organize and share opportunities for team members to volunteer their time across a wide range of initiatives. Follow us on Facebook to see what we're up to!

"I enjoy being able to assist and mentor others, especially youth. I've been in the shoes of the children I tutor and mentor each week. Through the impact of many great nonprofit organizations in the Tri-State, they have been able to change the trajectory of countless families for the better."
