Community Involvement

  • We love giving back

    Helping our community is one of our top priorities as a credit union. We love giving back, getting involved, and partnering up with local charities and fundraising efforts. On this page, we’ll tell you about our Jeans Because We Care program. We’ll also let you know how your organization can request a donation from SIU Credit Union.

    What is Blue Jeans Day?

    Every Friday, our staff has the option to wear jeans for a $2 donation that goes directly back to our local communities.

    In 2021, we raised nearly $7,400 with our jeans day donations for The Night’s Shield, The Womens Center, Weekend Blessings,Franklin/Williamson Child Advocacy Center and Saline Co. Shop with a Cop Program.

    We proudly wear our jeans because our casual Fridays make a real difference!

    Request a Donation

    At SIU Credit Union, we frequently donate and volunteer for a variety of charities and organizations. After all, we’re in the business of people helping people. Because of this, we are open to donation requests.

    Due to the high volume of requests we receive, we are unable to guarantee funding or volunteers for every request. The Guidelines  listed in the link at the bottom of the page must be followed in order to be considered for a donation or sponsorship.
