FMFCU FOUNDATION

About Us

Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union Foundation was established to support education and charitable causes in communities served by Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union with the support of our partners.

In 2007, the year FMFCU Foundation was formed, our financial literacy educators reached more than 600 students in 21 classrooms. Those figures multiplied each consecutive year. In 2014, Foundation programs touched more than 10,000 K-12 students in 18 school districts, college students on the campuses of four universities, and adults through a variety of financial education courses taught by FMFCU Community Educators.

Because of the quality and relevance of the programs it produces, FMFCU Foundation rapidly attracted the attention of neighboring organizations with the same mission. PECO, Comcast, Enterprise Holdings, Kimberly Clark, Conoco Philips, and others made financial contributions to the Foundation.

 

Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union Foundation, a 501 (c)(3), supports charitable and educational causes within the communities served by Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union.

Programs include: 

  • Delco Hi-Q academic competition 
  • Teacher grants
  • Community grants
  • College scholarships 
  • Charitable giving 
  • Bear Country Credit Union school field trips
  • Excellence in Teaching awards
Funding for FMFCU Foundation programs is made possible by corporate and individual donations, grants, and various fundraising efforts. All overhead costs are paid by Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union.
