The mission of the Coastal Credit Union Foundation is to enrich the lives of our members and their communities by providing financial support to 501(c)(3) organizations, particularly in the 16 county market of central North Carolina.
The Foundation's top priorities for community focus are:
- Helping the financially vulnerable
- Increasing financial literacy
- Alleviating food insecurity
Each time members use their Coastal debit or credit card, Coastal takes a penny from the fee we receive from the merchant, and donates it to the Foundation. It may seem like a small amount, but all those pennies add up to more than $275,000 a year to help our community.
