Community Involvement

Vizo Financial and its payment and technology CUSO, MY CU Services, continue to make a positive difference in our local communities. From volunteerism to donations, we want to share all the community activities we've got going on with you.

Maui Wildfire Reflief

In August, wildfires swept the Hawaiian island of Maui. In response, Vizo Financial donated $10,000 to the National Credit Union foundation’s CUAid disaster relief fund to help credit unions and their employees.

Vizo Financial Empowerment Grants Program

In September 2023, Vizo Financial launched our Empowerment Grants Program. The Corporate has pledged $1 million for the program, which includes a five-year plan to disperse the funds to credit union foundations so that they can help natural person credit unions build financial literacy programs.

Funds will be allocated on an annual basis to the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation, CrossState Credit Union Foundation, The Credit Union Foundation of Maryland and the District of Columbia, and the Credit Unions Care Foundation of Virginia, which are the state credit union foundations that serve the majority of Vizo Financial members.

The foundations will administer the grants by accepting credit union applications, approving grant requests and providing summary reporting on the impact of each project. The grants will be available to all Vizo Financial members, as well as other credit unions within their region who meet certain criteria and agree to the terms and conditions of the program.

Victory Junction’s Run to Victory Run/Walk Event

Vizo Financial was a Victory Lane sponsor of the Run to Victory run/walk event to benefit Victory Junction on September 9, 2023. Participants were invited to join the event either in-person at Victory Junction in Randleman, N.C., or virtually from their homes. Victory Junction serves children dealing with serious medical conditions and chronic illnesses. Their mission is to enrich the lives of children with serious illnesses by providing life-changing camp experiences that are exciting, fun and empowering, at no cost to children or their families.

Preparations Begin for 2023 Day of Service

Vizo Financial is gearing up for our annual Day of Service that will be held on Indigenous Peoples’ Day, October 9, 2023. Staff will have the opportunity to choose from volunteer opportunities at several events being offered at each campus. We look forward to supporting our local communities through various charities and organizations and to demonstrating the credit union movement's cooperative principle of "concern for community." This year’s organizations that we’ll be supporting include:

  • American Cancer Society
  • BackPack Beginnings
  • Caitlin's Smiles
  • Children's Miracle Network Hospitals
  • Cocoa Packs
  • Harvest Hope Food Bank
  • Hospice of Centeral PA - Camp Dragonfly
