Community Involvement

Summer Community Shred Events

DCCU holds shred events each summer. 2017 dates will be posted when they're available.

Join us for the next DCCU Cares Event

Each quarter DCCU looks for donations and volunteers to help us with a “DCCU CARES” event. These events are organized by our Community Involvement Committee with the goal of helping people in our community.

Community Involvement Practices

It is the philosophy of Dane County Credit Union to invest resources to non-profit organizations that benefit those in our field of membership and whose goals and objectives are aligned with the credit union mission and values. Our objective is to promote designated issues with non-profits to create measurable positive change in Dane County, WI.
