Connected By One Community
Downey Federal Credit Union (DFCU) continues to strive to not only serve the financial needs of the community and organizations in the city, but to be an active member of the city ourselves. In 2014, we gifted approximately $46,832.64 back to the City of Downey in the form of special school programs, student scholarships, and Student Enrichment Grants to DUSD teachers; support for non-profit organizations such as Stay Gallery, TLC, The Arc, G.O.O.D, and SEAACA; and also, the backing of local entities, like the YMCA, Downey Police and Fire Departments, the Downey Chamber of Commerce and more.
DFCU’s fight to eradicate hunger in our city culminated with the donation of 28,344 meals, to help feed families in need in Downey. On April 17, 2014, our 1st Annual Feeding Children Everywhere Food Packing Event — DFCU Cares, was a huge success. We donated 27,000 meals to PTA H.E.L.P.S. and FoodHelp, a food bank at Downey First Christian Church. The inaugural year of our cash-back dining rewards program, Mogl, which allows members to donate meals to PTA H.E.L.P.S. just for dining out at participating restaurants, resulted in the donation of 1,344 meals. And, as always $5 of our $7 one-time membership fee is donated to the member’s choice of one of three local charities, which resulted in $1,460.00 in donations. Thank you to our members for contributing to the work we do in Downey!
We are very proud of the collaborative relationships we have developed that support the City of Downey and many of its very important organizations.
