At Royal, our core purpose is to create a positive impact in the lives we touch. This purpose is the driving force behind everything we do. We are so committed to this core purpose that we go beyond our credit union Members and team members to make a positive impact by giving back in our wider community.
Community Give Back Day
On Community Give Back Day, all office locations are closed and team members participate in a variety of activities that give back to our communities. This event is typically held every other year in October on Columbus Day. So far, Royal team members have assisted over 60 organizations with projects as part of Community Give Back Day and contributed more than 3,400 hours of community service.
The RCU Foundation
Our nonprofit foundation supports organizations and initiatives in the communities that Royal serves. The RCU Foundation has given over $3 million in charitable grants since it began in 2012. Learn more about the RCU Foundation here.
Royal’s Volunteer Program rewards Members who volunteer in our communities with account benefits. We also encourage our team members to provide hands-on service in our communities. Team members volunteer over 3,000 hours each year at local charities, community projects, and civic groups. Learn more about the Volunteer Program here.
Our 29 in-school locations are run with the help of student workers and offer youth the chance to experience banking for themselves. We also gave nearly 800 youth financial education presentations reaching more than 10,000 students last year. We offer financial literacy help for adults as well, with all Members eligible for a free financial review where we review their goals and help answer questions about their finances.
