The Great Employee Philanthropy Takeover

We are giving $24,000 back to the community, one-thousand dollars at a time, and our employees are choosing the recipients. They are nominating their favorite, local charities to receive $1,000. These charities have touched our lives, and we bet they’ve touched yours too. The donations takeover is part of the credit union’s Mission to give back to its communities and help them thrive.

Follow along on social media to see if your favorite local charity is chosen to receive $1,000!!

Highlights from 2021's commitment  

We want to give a shout out to our own staff who marked another successful year full of volunteering, fundraising, donating to charity drives and community groups throughout 2021. They are what makes our organization so unique! 

“In a time when so many non-profits are suffering from the pandemic, it’s great to be able to help support the organizations that are helping so many in need throughout our communities.”

- Lori Hudson, Community Engagement Manager for West Community Credit Union.

Community Choice SOcial Giveaway  

We wanted to find out what local non-profits YOU support. So we asked on Facebook and presented a $1,000 donation to FIVE different community-approved organizations. Recipients included Marygrove, Boys Hope Girls Hope, Children's Miracle Network of Greater St. Louis, The Little Bit Foundation, and Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition.


See what we've been up to recently:

Volunteering in the Community

Part of our credit union’s Vision is to Help our Communities Thrive. One key way we accomplish this is by asking every employee to participate in volunteer opportunities that we schedule throughout the year.

Supporting Local Organizations

West Community employees raise money for local charities by donating $1 to wear jeans on Fridays. Since the launch in 2016, our employees have raised nearly $23,000 in donations with our Denim for Dollars program!

Partnering with the Community

We pride ourselves in helping our communities thrive and believe one of the ways we can help build those relationships is by supporting local city, chamber and school events in the communities we serve.
