Community Involvement

Community First Federal Credit Union strives to make a positive impact on the communities that we serve.  We have sponsored sports teams, donated to local charities, and volunteered at various community events.  We strive to support our community in any way possible. That is why we donate to various organizations that have an impact in the lives of people in our community.

CFFCU also operates a ‘mini-branch’ in a local school.  For information on the mini-branch visit our Youth Savers page.



We have sponsored adult softball, youth summer ball, and volleyball teams.  We sponsored a bowling tournament to raise funds for Autism Speaks.  Each year we sponsor one act at Music in the Park in Lakeview.  We are the main financial sponsor for Tri-County High School’s Awards Night.

In February 2017, we started Casual Because We Care campaign.  Our staff has the option of wearing jeans on Friday with a donation to the cause of the month.  Our donations so far:

Our staff have volunteered their time at local school functions by selling concessions or tickets.  We have volunteered at Breakfast on the Farm, an educational day at a local dairy farm.  We organize kids games during the Trufant Jubilee.  You will see us in the parades during Lakeview’s Summerfest, Howard City’s Harvest Festival, and Trufant’s Jubilee.
