School, Student, and Teacher Event Support
Staying true to our roots
Florida Credit Union was founded in 1954 as the Alachua County Teacher’s Credit Union. Ever since then, we've maintained a strong connection to local schools and education-based organizations.
In addition to sponsoring school sports teams, FCU representatives visit nearly 100 schools across the region annually during “FCU’s Back-to-School Teacher Appreciation” period. They provide breakfast or lunch and goody bags to faculty and staff, present a monetary donation to each school, and answer questions about the credit union.
Encouraging Tomorrow's Leaders
At Florida Credit Union, we believe in the power of educational opportunities for our young members. We started out serving teachers, so education has always been a priority for us. Every year, we award three scholarships to students based on their scholastic record, future potential, leadership, initiative, character, dependability, integrity and financial needs. Students are eligible to apply if they, or their parents/guardian, are FCU members, and if the students are actively enrolled or plan to enroll in undergraduate college courses within the calendar year.
