The New Year is a time to look back on our 2016 accomplishments and reaffirm our goals for the New Year. Last year was a special one for Community Financial Credit Union as we proudly celebrated our 65th anniversary. We celebrated our members, with appreciation days, service focused on their specific needs and special rate bonuses. We celebrated our communities, by donating both volunteers and dollars to help enrich the lives of the people living around us. We celebrated with our team members as we earned the “101 Best Places to Work” for the eleventh year running.
We were proud to award nineteen (19) scholarships through the Community Financial Scholarship Fund in 2016. In addition, our award winning Student-Run Credit Union program helped educate over 25,000 youth through our partnerships with local schools. Read more
The calendar has turned a page and it’s the start of another New Year. It’s also the start of the holiday shopping bills. It’s easy to get caught up in the holiday spirit and put just a few more purchases on that credit card. Our December blog, Holiday Budgeting Lessons for Parents, shared that according to a T. Rowe Price survey over half the parents surveyed will pay for their holiday gifts with credit cards. Just 61% of them plan to pay off their spending within three months, and 16% say they will pay it off over the course of six months or more.

Transfer balances to your Community Financial MasterCard between January 9, 2017 and February 28, 2017 and you’ll pay only 2.9% on the transferred amount until August 31, 2017. Read more

Community Financial’s 5th Annual Warming Hearts & Homes charitable campaign was held in December. Throughout the month, Community Financial donated $40,000 to local nonprofit organizations that provide heat, food, shelter and clothing to low-income families. The winter months can put an extra strain on some families, many times forcing them to choose between paying utilities and putting food on the table. Read more
