The TCU Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization established to support the credit union’s vision of partnering with our communities to help them achieve their financial success in four areas.

  • Financial Literacy/Empowerment Programs: These initiatives cover specific financial principles that help individuals develop sound financial management skills.
  • College Scholarships: Scholarships are awarded to an accredited college, university, or other scholarship granting/distribution organization for the benefit of selected students. Students cannot apply directly to the TCU Foundation for a scholarship.
  • High-Impact Educational Programs: We focus on programs that have measurable results, are sustainable and provide long-term impact for participant achievement.
  • Member Matching Initiatives. These efforts support charities/causes of special interest to our members. Available to qualifying nonprofit organizations, these programs provide matching funds from TCU Foundation for member contributions to the organization. Member matching initiatives are subject to specific requirements and timelines. Organizations applying for matching funds must represent education, the arts, health and human services or economic development
