School/Community Involvement

We’re into giving back

At Extra Credit Union, we feel passionately about connecting with our surrounding community and positively contributing to local children’s lives. Via photos and descriptions in our News & Alerts section, enewsletter and social media platforms, learn about the ways that we actively provide caring, one-on-one attention to children in need. We also offer opportunities for you to contribute, too!

Winning Futures
Every year, individual Extra Credit Union staff members mentor up to four high school students in need for the duration of the school year. Our entire staff supports Winning Future’s vision financially though our employee Jeans for a Cause fund. We are also proud to co-sponsor Winning Futures events, which recognize students and their families.

MISD’s Homeless Education Project
Each holiday season, Extra Credit Union employees and our members offer donations to the Macomb Intermediate School District’s Homeless Education Project. Cold weather supplies {hats, scarves, coats, mittens/gloves}, toiletries, socks, gift cards, and cash donations are collected and benefit local children whose families are currently homeless.

Blessings in a Backpack
Extra Credit Union supports the Blessings in a Backpack program in Warren Consolidated and Center Line School districts through employee Jeans for a Cause donations, event sponsorships, service activities, and more. Blessings in a Backpack is a program that provides food over the weekend for children whose families struggle to put meals on the table and who might not otherwise get balanced nutrition when not in school.

Active sponsorships and support
Football and other sports games, pep rallies, senior all-night parties, yearbook ads, and various fundraisers—we’re all over the place and we love it! Extra Credit Union sponsors and supports many different school programs, and we are extremely dedicated and active in supporting partner schools.

If you are a partner school with a sponsorship need, contact our School and Community Relations Coordinator, Ashley Fordyce, at (586) 276-3150.

Jeans for a Cause
At Extra Credit Union, we constantly seek ways to show our commitment to our partner schools. Employees who participate in our Jeans for A Cause fund can wear jeans every Friday for a weekly $4 donation toward this fund, which supports the important school programs mentioned above.

Want to join the efforts? Donate any amount—big or small—toward our Jeans for a Cause fund. You may drop it off at any Extra Credit Union location. To learn more, contact our School and Community Relations Coordinator, Ashley Fordyce, at (586) 276-3150.
