Community Financial Sets Sights on an Even Better Year
PLYMOUTH, Mich. – Community Financial Credit Union published its Annual Community Report last month and the results aren't surprising. With the word "community" in its name, Community Financial knows its success comes from members and their impact in areas surrounding their branches.
A review of the 2015 involvement in the community is proof of their commitment to helping others, and reveals a trend toward even greater growth in 2016. Community Financial's support of nonprofit organizations, partnerships with surrounding schools and overall "People Helping People" philosophy is what sets them apart from other financial institutions.
"Our volunteer board of directors understands the importance of having healthy communities for our members to live and work in," said Community Financial's CEO Bill Lawton. "They want local consumers and businesses to enjoy sound financial health and for our communities to be enriched through our existence."
Community Financial also places heavy emphasis on the financial education of children across the state of Michigan, from offering scholarships to providing educational opportunities through their student-run credit union program. "It makes me excited as I look forward to student teaching and having my own classroom someday," said Shannon Kievit, a 2015 Community Financial scholarship recipient. It's that type of impact that Community Financial aims to make each and every year.
According to team members at Community Financial, their continued growth is a result of community involvement and strong member loyalty. "The trust that members place in us as their financial institution is what allows us to help them reach their financial goals," said one team member. "Each year we continue to grow alongside our members and that's what makes me proud to be a part of this team!"
