Community Involvement

At CUA, we don't just invest in the success of our customers, but also in the success of the communities where we live and work.

We make it a priority to contribute to charitable programs all year round and support employees efforts to give back to their communities. These are some programs and organizations CU Alliance proudly supports:

Cy-Fair Educational Foundation has been providing college scholarships for Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District (CFISD) graduating seniors for more than 41 years and raises funds for staff development grants since 1998.

As CFISD grows, opening new high schools, and as the cost of education increases, the Foundation must continually expand its donor base to raise more funds. In the last decade, four new high schools have opened, and CFEF has awarded scholarships to students at each of these CFISD high schools. To learn more visit

Cy-Hope is a Houston area organization whose mission is to help every school in the Cy-Fair ISD to earn Exemplary status by making life better for kids in the community.

Cy-Hope was honored with the prestigious 2014 Top-Rated award by Great Nonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations. To learn more visit

Abby’s Gift is a 501(c)3 foundation created to help families with a criticallyill or terminallyill child (pre-natal to age 18), many times on End of Life care.  They are 100% volunteer operated so donations can go directly to their mission and purpose, not to staffing and operations.

The six cardiologists who founded the American Heart Association in 1924 would be amazed.

From humble beginnings, the AHA has grown into the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. A shared focus on cardiovascular health unites our more than 33 million volunteers and supporters as well as our more than 3,400 employees. Learn more about their impact over time.

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. They want to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

Their size and scope let them have real impact. They have invested more than $4.5 billion in research, more than any U.S. nonprofit organization. Learn more about life-changing funded research breakthroughs.

The Dream Educational Foundation’s mission is to provide financial help to high school students in the community and credit union and Credit Union Service Organizations’ (CUSOs) staff looking to further their education in the accounting and finance sectors.

The Dream Educational Foundation envisions a community where those with the need and the drive have the opportunity to reach their full potential by continuing or participating in higher education. They believe higher education to be a positive change that can enhance the lives of individuals and families.

They see a community that recognizes the importance of education and ensures the doors to higher or post-secondary education are open to those with the potential to succeed.
