Centered Around Our Community

Home > About Us > Community Giveback Program

At Circle Federal Credit Union, it is our mission to advocate for the financial well-being of our members, enrichment of the communities we service, and to inspire and provide solutions to allow our members to have a smarter, simpler, and more accessible way to bank.


In 2023, we officially introduced our 'Community Giveback Program'. Our goal is to support the communities in which we live, work and play by paying it forward to help those in need and positively impact the places we call home. Our employees designate a charity or organization of their choice that benefit from our fundraising efforts throughout the year. Between our raffles and other miscellaneous fundraisers, we raised over $5,000 in 2023.
