The Caring for our Community program at GCS Credit Union in Edwardsville is a unique program that rewards staff members for their volunteer hours within the community. In 2018 they generated 1,000 volunteer hours. The credit union movement stands firmly by a set of philosophical tenets. Credit unions embrace the seven cooperative principles because at the heart of business, it is the right thing to do. The seventh cooperative principle is concern for community and the Caring for our Community program is a splendid example of nurturing the philosophy into action. In addition to their stellar volunteer program, GCS Credit Union has always made giving back to the community a priority. In 2018 the credit union employees pledged $21k in donations to the United Way; the Board of Directors matched the employee give and together they were able to contribute over $42k to the United Way. The credit union mission of People Helping People is more than just a principle; it is always based in action and honors the kindness and generosity that is the credit union difference.
