Freedom Credit Union strongly believes in giving back to the Members it serves and improving the communities in which they live and work. Below are just a few of the events and programs that Freedom has initiated and continues to support.
Every year, three $2,000 scholarship awards will be given to qualified students to help them further their education. Scholarship applicants must meet specific qualifications for consideration and must submit a 500-word essay on a specific topic chosen by the Freedom Credit Union Scholarship Committee. Only Members are eligible to apply.
The 2016 Scholarship entry period is now closed and will reopen next April for the 2017 scholarships.
Financial Literacy Education
Freedom Credit Union continues its commitment to financial education in the Delaware Valley by providing financial literacy materials and seminars in the communities we serve. Since 2006, the Credit Union has given financial education materials to 177 schools, reaching more than 25,000 students in the 5 county Philadelphia area.
Toys for Tots & Annual Holiday Donation
In the spirit of the Credit Union movement motto, "People Helping People," Freedom Credit Union assisted the community with two generous acts of kindness this past holiday season. Freedom teamed up with the United States Marine Corps and was a drop-off location for the Toys for Tots program, encouraging both Members and employees to make toy donations to this worthy cause. In addition, Freedom's employee club, the Sunshine Club, also made their annual holiday donations to two worthy charities.
