Our workplace culture embraces our commitment to elevate the well-being of Western Connecticut. With volunteer-time-off, MSCU employees spend countless hours each year strengthening our community by getting out of the office and spending time supporting a cause that they’re passionate about.
Every year, we award six $1,000 Mutual Security Credit Union Community Service Scholarships to students, who are in good academic standing, have demonstrated financial need, and have given selflessly of themselves to improve the overall state of affairs in their community.
We strive to be a true community partner and assist the great work nonprofit organizations in Western Connecticut are doing to help individuals in times of great need.
In 2021 alone, we have supported Homes for the Brave, Valley United Way, Star Inc., Boys and Girls Club of Lower Naugatuck Valley, The Alliance for Community Empowerment Inc., The Prosperity Foundation, The Carver Foundation, Fairfield County Community Foundation Thrive by 25, Filling in the Blanks, Bridgeport Rescue Mission, BHCare, Keystone House, Wellmore Behavioral Health, The Child & Family Guidance Center, United Way Danbury Food Collaborative, Adam's House, St. Vincent DePaul Mission of Waterbury, and Griffin Health.

As you know best, one organization cannot be all things to all people. At MSCU, we focus our community impact projects on the following four areas:
• Financial Education
• Health and Human Services
• Housing Programs
• Environmental Programs
It is our belief that our efforts in these areas will help secure a more vibrant future for our members, their families, and their communities.
We will review every request submitted and try to be fair and equitable in the donations we make. If we are not able to support your cause in the current year, we recommend you resubmit your request the following year. Our donation budget changes each year and we are committed to being diverse in selecting the organizations that we can help.
