Out in the community

We love to be engaged in our communities and support charitable organizations with our time, talent, and financial resources. (Giving back to our communities is in our DNA!) As a local financial institution, we’re most passionate about local nonprofit organizations that support families, children, and education.

In 2022, Linn Area employees volunteered 944 hours to 68 nonprofit organizations, and our employee-run donation committee directed $44,388 to 46 nonprofit organizations that make a positive difference in our communities. (Feel free to request a donation for your nonprofit organization!)

We hold several fundraisers throughout the year to support our primary charity, the Children’s Miracle Network at the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital. As of 2022, Linn Area CU has donated more than $522,000 to CMN.

There is almost always some representation of Linn Area Credit Union at community charity events, such as the annual Especially for You Race Against Breast Cancer and Bowl for Kids’ Sake. You’ll also find our teams ringing the bell for the Salvation Army during the holiday season!

Linn Area Credit Union sponsors the Teacher Store, the only one of its kind in Iowa. The Teacher Store is a nonprofit organization that provides free classroom materials and supplies to area educators and their students.

Community Support

Linn Area Credit Union is very much a local not-for-profit organization, and as such, providing support to our communities is very important to us! We did some amazingly fun things to raise money for charity, from being a United Way Pacesetter to our annual golf outing for Children's Miracle Network. Here's a look at some of the shenanigans and community support we provided in 2017.
