At DFCU Financial, we know we can only succeed if the communities we serve are economically healthy.
Because we believe that a proper education is fundamental to a prosperous economic future, we’ve centered our philanthropic efforts on public education in the communities we serve.
Each year, DFCU Financial donates thousands of dollars to public school districts across the state as part of our commitment to support education and help children become financially literate.
We know it’s important for children to learn sound money management skills that will serve them well as adults. In conjunction with our donations, we work in partnership with local school districts to teach financial literacy in the classroom as well as in our branches.
As part of our community outreach, DFCU Financial also partners with The Henry Ford in Dearborn and Potter Park Zoo in Lansing -- both educational-based institutions that play important roles in teaching our children about the world in which they live.

The Big Read Comes To Dearborn
We at DFCU Financial believe that if you READ, you
SUCCEED. That’s we have invested as the
Leader of the Pack sponsor for the Big Read Dearborn, March – May 2014.
The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts,
designed to revitalize the role of literature in American culture and to
encourage citizens to read for pleasure and enlightenment. Dearborn Public Library is one of 77
organizations nationwide that received this grant to host a Big Read program in
their community. The Big Read Dearborn,
themed Call of the Wild: EmBARKing on
Discovery, will focus on Jack London’s classic American novel, Call of the Wild.
A series of events is planned throughout March, April and
May for children, teens and adults, including movies, book discussions,
lectures, a photo contest and more. For
