MembersAlliance Credit Union announces Community Impact Fund
The long-time credit union motto of people helping people, means banking services designed to maximize the positive impact on members, but it also means making a positive impact in helping build and sustain a stronger community.
Since January 2021, through partnerships, sponsorships, and educational programs, MembersAlliance has partnered with over 50 local organizations, and contributed over $50,000 and 475 hours to making a difference in our community. Along with our corporate efforts, our Employee Enhancement Committee (EEC) selects local nonprofit organizations to which employees can donate time, money, or supplies.
Alone, we can do some good, but together, we can make a real difference. In establishing our Community Impact Fund, we hope to help facilitate these efforts and expand the positive impact within our community. In addition to facilitating employee giving, MembersAlliance members and community members can now also help further this cause, by donating funds to this Impact Fund.
2021 Community Support
2021 continued to provide obstacles throughout our daily lives, but in addition to doing our part to help you achieve financial well-being, being an active, engaged member of our community is also of the utmost importance. There are countless worthwhile local organizations also striving to make a difference right here in our community. We are proud to support the Illinois Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) and have our annual notice posted here.
We are also privileged to partner and sponsor a variety of local events and organizations within this amazing community we call home! Along with our corporate efforts, our Employee Enhancement Committee* (EEC) selects charities to which employees can donate time, money, or supplies.

Our Partners in Kind (PIK) crew continues to rethink engagement.
Our PIK crew continued to change up how we set out to encourage a kinder community. Rethinking how we could continue our pop-up support, we looked inward. Adding to our support of local businesses, we added the great pumpkin giveaway at our branches in October.
Plus, we randomly visit local businesses, groups and organizations to spread goodwill! We all know it’s important to simply do a good deed just because ... but do we always act?
Whether it’s buying beverages or providing snacks and refreshments for the patrons at a local coffee shop, a cafe, or even a handful of Rockford/Stateline area events, our PIK crew is out there to make you stop, smile, and enjoy your community!
