CCCU’s Global Impact

We believe the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19—“therefore go and make disciples of all nations…”—is just as applicable to our business as it is to each believer’s life. In this spirit, we’re committed to partnering and donating to ministries whose mission is to help transform lives through Christ’s love, whether in the U.S. or abroad.

When you’re a member of CCCU, you play a key role in our giving because the money you deposit into the Credit Union is re-invested to help build churches and expand ministries. Likewise, every time you use your credit and debit cards, you’re changing lives. Through our “Cards that Give to Missions” program, we’ve donated over $5.9 million to missions and ministry projects since 1995.

Christian Community Credit Union Donates $5,000 For Hurricane Ian Relief

Christian Community Credit Union (CCCU) donated $5,000 to American Baptist Home Mission Societies (ABHMS) disaster relief effort in response to the devastation left by Hurricane Ian in Florida and other southern states. The unimaginable levels of destruction have led to the loss of lives, hundreds of homes destroyed, and the displacement of thousands of residents.

The funds for the donation come from CCCU’s “Cards that Give to Missions” program, in which a portion of the Credit Union’s interchange income (fees merchants pay to card issuers) is donated when cardholders use their Christian Community Credit Union-issued credit cards for purchases. To date, CCCU has given over $5.9 million to Christian causes.
