At City & County Credit Union, we believe in being a part of something bigger than ourselves and improving more than just our members’ financial lives. We go beyond financial transactions by seeking ways to educate, invest and support our community.
We believe in people over profits and consistently listen to the needs of our community and members to provide resources necessary to thrive.
From elementary school students to retirees, we aim to provide financial education classes on a variety of topics to educate members through every step in life. In 2015, 300 community members attended a financial literacy seminar on topics such as budgeting, credit scores and the home buying process.

At City & County Credit Union, we believe that it is never too early to start saving and learning about financial education.
Money on the Bookshelf
Money on the Bookshelf is a free financial literacy program at our Lake Elmo Branch that inspires children to learn more about the basics of money by reading money-themed books. Youth are encouraged to read five books from our shelf. After reading five books, they are rewarded with a $5 CCCU Coupon that can be deposited into their savings account or used to buy CCCU goodies.
As of today, more than 85 youth CCCU members have a read a book off of our shelf.
Going beyond monetary donations, CCCU actively supports our community volunteering with a host of charitable organizations.
Every year, CCCU staff joins together to volunteer throughout the community to make an impact. On October 10, 2016, CCCU hosted the 2nd Annual Impact Day. On Impact Day, CCCU made the following impact:
- 47 Welcome Home Kitchen Kits were made for community members transitioning out of homelessness
- 3 hours were spent visiting local residents of the Maplewood Salvation Army Adult Day Center
- 1,200 Bags of food were prepared at The Sheridan Story for youth in local school districts
- 3 hours were spent at Bridging creating Kitchen Kits & unloading trucks for the warehouse
- 300 pounds of rice and beans were portioned into family sizes for the local food shelf
