USFCU wants our high school seniors to get assistance with paying for college the best we can. For this reason, each year we award graduating high school seniors with scholarships. Applications are accepted January – March. The applications are reviewed by our Scholarship Committee and scholarships are awarded to members in their awards ceremonies at their high schools.
Each summer, USFCU hosts a night at the ball park for the Bristol Pirates. Members are encouraged to attend to support your local minor league baseball team and your Credit Union. USFCU gives door prizes and giveaways to attendees. To view the Pirates’ schedule, click on the Bristol Pirates link above. Keep watch for more information.
Don’t Tax My Credit Union
To ensure that the government doesn’t cause any more taxes upon you, the consumer, United Southeast Federal Credit Union asks that you take a moment to reach out to your local representative and ask them to not tax credit unions. Currently, credit unions are not-for-profit organization that exist to keep interest rates on loans as low and affordable as possible. We are able to give higher dividend rates back to you (i.e. put money back in your pockets) because we are not heavily taxed. To issue a new tax on all credit unions would be detrimental to our economy, not only locally but nationally. Click on the link above to learn more and take your stand with US.
Many times during the year, USFCU teams up with local schools and organizations to offer a free finance class to teach students about finances. Topics include: budgeting, credit reports, identity theft, checking and human resource topics. USFCU wants the next generation to excel and keep the workforce in America alive and well.
