“People helping people” has been a guiding principle since our early beginnings in 1952. For more than 70 years, we have continued to be wholeheartedly invested in our state and the people of Alaska.Get Involved
Being an Alaska financial institution means being a member of the community. That means investing in future generations, aiding our neighbors, and helping every member achieve their potential. Our branches are not only a place to manage finances; it’s where we take care of one another, make connections, and aspire together for the future of our home communities.
Supporting our communities
People are at the heart of everything we do at Credit Union 1, whether helping members achieve their financial goals or volunteering with a local non-profit. Our community outreach efforts are central to who we are as a local Alaskan credit union! We maintain active roles in our communities through fundraising, corporate giving and volunteerism, and we are grateful to every CU1 employee who gives time and energy to impact those around us positively.
Making a difference in our Alaskan communities through fundraising
Each year, Credit Union 1 raises funds for a unique selection of Leading Change partners hand-picked by Credit Union 1 employees who live and work in our Alaskan communities. When you use our mobile giving tool to donate, you can be sure that the money you give to fellow Alaskans in need will make a real, local impact.
Credit Union 1 is proud to make monetary contributions to projects, programs and causes across our state that are targeted toward our focused areas of giving. By targeting funds toward the areas of Youth & Education, Health & Wellbeing and Social Services, we’re able to make a deeper impact with each contribution.
For your need to be considered, please refer to our corporate contribution guidelines.
One of the many ways we give back to the communities in which we live and work is by volunteering our time. Credit Union 1 employees can be seen everywhere from road cleanups to serving holiday meals for those in need. We’re a talented group with people-focused priorities, and we love to give our time in all kinds of ways!
CU1 Community Room
Inside of the credit union’s Mountain View Branch in Anchorage, we offer a community room for public use. In the past, this space has been used to provide a meeting place for local nonprofits, free tax prep for locals in need, and more. Learn how it could serve you.
