Capital Credit Union is a local financial institution headquartered in Green Bay, with a De Pere branch on Fifth Street. As a credit union, they provide a wide variety of financial services including, but not limited to: savings and checking accounts, mortgages, financial advising, and auto and commercial loans. They have assets of more than $1.1 billion and serve more than 100,000 members throughout Northeast Wisconsin. Their tagline is “Doing the Right Thing” and they work to incorporate this mission into each facet of their business model, earning them this week’s Business of the Week!
It all started back in 2004, when De Pere’s Fox Point Credit Union merged with Pioneer Credit Union. After another merger in 2014, they became Capital Credit Union. While their name has changed, their focus to serve their local community did not. From fun in-branch contests to supporting area charities, such as the Altrusa House and Exceptional Equestrians, this branch bleeds De Pere – West and East.
Community outreach is a priority at Capital Credit Union and they engage through volunteering, sponsorships, and other avenues. In 2016, Captial Credit Union donated billboard space to a local homeless shelter to help bring greater awareness and visibility to the needs of the non-profit. Powerful statements dotted the community, such as “Heading home? Think about those who can’t.” This campaign helped narrate a clear message about the impact of homelessness in the Green Bay metro area. This media donation came through a growing partnership with the homeless shelter through employee driven fundraisers, shelter tours, renovation projects and member donation drives. It hass become an employee passion to change the community conversation about homelessness.
