Community Impact Report
Kindness Creates Joy
Dane County Credit Union is doing some real good in the community! New for 2018, we are launching our Kindness Creates Joy initiative.
For a few weeks at a time, we will have an army of staff members out and about, each armed with $20 each. They will be randomly giving that money away to someone, to brighten their day! Will it be YOU? Will they pay for someone’s fill up at the gas station, or pay for the coffee for the next few people behind them? Will they be making an in-person donation to a charity? The possibilities are endless, but you could be on the receiving end of some FREE money!
Be sure to check our Facebook and Twitter for the stories about how we’re bringing smiles to peoples’ faces, one day at a time. DCCU cares about our community, so we’re making it a happier place! #KindnessCreatesJoy

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.

Dane County Humane Society
On May 14, 2015 we helped clean up the outdoor grounds of the Dane County Humane Society by removing invasive weeds, clearing trails of debris and fallen branches from the winter, as well as cleaning up droppings. The animals depend on clean, clear outdoor areas to exercise and stay healthy! Also, we asked members and friends to participate in a donation drive for The Humane Society of Dane County.
On March 17, 2015, we prepared and served a group meal at Gilda's Club in Madison. Gilda’s club supports those who are impacted by cancer.
