We are here for our communities

TDECU is driven by a mission of people helping people. Credit unions were created so Members could invest their savings together, lend to one another, and own a part in the organization — a true definition of people helping people. TDECU Cares is a united employee-wide effort committed to giving back. We have dedicated over 2,263 volunteer hours — at a value of over $64,800 — to encourage health and wellness, support education, and provide community enrichment. We are committed to improving lives and we strive to make a difference every day.

In 2023, the TDECU Cares program donated over $628,000 to the community by providing meals, teaching financial literacy, reading to children, supporting our local schools and universities, giving scholarships, and revitalizing our neighborhoods. Together, we can make a difference.

To learn more about what organizations we support in the community, please review our Giving Guidelines here.

Education leads the way

At TDECU, we understand the importance of education. We offer many resources to assist students through financial literacy courses taught at local schools and universities, our student Member scholarship program, funding local education foundations, or even the TDECU stadium. When we invest in education, we know that we are investing in the future, which will directly impact today and in the years to come.

Building up and enriching our communities

Giving back to our community is at the forefront of TDECU Cares. Our communities depend on their members to thrive, and those members want support and a sense of security and belonging where they live. The TDECU team has dedicated hours focused on life skills for youth, community revitalization, and workforce development. We understand the key is to break down barriers, enhance the neighborhoods around us, and give financial guidance.

Keeping you healthy and well

Health and wellness are our greatest community assets. Health allows people to live their lives to the fullest and well-being is fundamental so they can overcome difficulties and achieve their goals.

Our goal is to promote the health and well-being of our community.
