Credit Union West
Glendale, AZ – Credit Union West announces a month-long campaign to showcase the company’s 70-year commitment to our brave men and women who have served and are serving our country by honoring their dedication and patriotism. As a longstanding member of the Defense Credit Union Council, Credit Union West proudly supports military personnel and local communities.
“Credit Union West is honoring our legacy by supporting service members with quality financial services and stepping up in our community,” said Karen Roch, President and CEO. “One of our core values is giving back to the communities we serve and those individuals who serve our nation.”
From participation in community events and sponsorship of critical community non-profits to providing scholarships for local students, and being the credit union of choice for Luke Air Force Base (Luke AFB), Credit Union West is a trusted financial resource for the military community across Arizona. Credit Union West supports the following organizations and many others:
- Luke Air Force Base
- Fighter Country Partnership
- Veterans Medical Leadership Council
- Glendale Stand Up 4 Veterans
- Association of the U.S. Army
“As a not-for-profit credit union, we focus on reinvesting in our members and our communities,” said Roch. “A big part of the Credit Union West community includes our military service personnel and veterans—supporting them is a part of our DNA and a point of pride for our company and our staff.”
Credit Union West provides direct sponsorships, in-kind support, employee volunteering, and more. Their employees provide financial education to newly-assigned airmen at Luke AFB, champion Military Saves Week, participate in annual Financial Expos with Fighter Country Partnership and support veterans pursuing their education. Credit Union West also provides scholarships to high school seniors who participated in a Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) program as a part of the Credit Union West Scholarship Program.
