Partner Highlight: Denver Community Credit Union

Denver Community Credit Union has sponsored Emily Griffith Technical College graduation for the last two years and works with the College to provide financial education classes to all who wish to learn.

The team at DCCU is always looking for more opportunities to get involved and support Emily Griffith. We are so grateful for their generosity, community focus, and their commitment to true partnership.

Since 1934, Denver Community Credit Union has been making a difference in members’ lives by providing financial opportunity. It is that commitment to opportunity that unites Denver Community Credit Union and Emily Griffith Foundation.

Emily Griffith Foundation is entirely committed to the principle that anyone who wishes to learn should have access to a quality education that leads to sustainable employment. Moreover, we believe that personal betterment through education should never result in debt. To this end, EGF underwrites scholarship and program support that allows the more than 7,000 students enrolled at EGTC each year to pursue their dreams without the burden of student loans.

Denver Community Credit Union is as committed to Denver and its people as Emily Griffith Foundation. It was no surprise to us when DCCU was recognized as Credit Union of the Year in 2016 “for innovation and outstanding achievements in the various areas of day-to-day operations, financial prowess, community service, and member service.”
