We are committed to supporting our COMMUNITY.
At Intrepid Credit Union, we have made it part of our mission to giveback. We support many different efforts within the communities we serve: The Intrepid Credit Union Symphony Under the Stars, combating hunger with the Helena Food Share, supporting community gathering with the Helena Farmer's Market, partnering with the dynamic team at Prospera/ the Montana Women's Business Center, and creating opportunities for children to thrive with ExplorationWorks.
We care about voluntering in the community and encourage our employees to do the same. Each year, Intrepid Credit Union provides 20-hours of employer paid time to our team members to support a project they are passionate about, like: NamiWalks, Make A Wish, The Lewis & Clark Humane Society’s Spay-ghetti Dinner, and the Governor’s Cup, to name a few.
Intrepid CARES is an initiative within Intrepid Credit Union that encompasses the organization's charitable giving guidelines and commitment to serve. As an institution, we are dedicated to serving our communities and giving back to the people who call Montana, home. We have built our culture to reflect our values in service and encourage volunteering and philanthropy to our employees and members.
Our four core principles anchor our giving structure to make the most impact within the communities we serve. These guidelines are not fixed protocols and Intrepid Credit Union may make exceptions when considering donations.
The four core principles include: Human Services, Community Development & Prosperity, Education & Financial Literacy, and Employer-sponsored Volunteerism.
Intrepid Credit Union will distribute at least 35% of our annual giving to non-profit organizations who directly provide service to people in need. These causes feed the hungry, shelter our community members in need, nurture the elderly and young, and address the needs of the disadvantaged, underemployed, or disabled.
Community Development & Prosperity:
Intrepid Credit Union will distribute at least 35% of our annual giving to community-based organizations committed to investing in and improving our communities. These community development organizations, projects or programs promote economic growth and stability, enhancing quality of life, provide support to small businesses, or lead housing and revitalization projects.
Education & Financial Literacy:
Intrepid Credit Union is dedicated to supporting education-focused organizations and providing financial literacy to students of all ages.
Intrepid Credit Union will support, in the form of paid hours, an employee pursuing a volunteer opportunity or community service at 20 hours annually.
