    Community Events

    We were the proud primary sponsor of Boo at the Zoo in 2021 and the March of Dimes March for Babies in 2013 and 2019. ATFCU has presented the dramatic reading stage at the annual Children’s Literary Festival since 2013.

    Supporting Children and Education

    We introduced Skip-A-Pay to the Abilene area in 2004. It’s a win/win/win for the credit union, our members and the Boys and Girls Club of Abilene.

Financial Literacy in the Classroom

Whether it’s a classroom discussion or a large in-school economic reality fair, we can help.

Elizabeth Gray is the Community Relations Specialist at Abilene Teachers FCU. Please contact her at (325) 677-2274 or [email protected] to discuss possibilities.

We want to put a good word in for the Banzai financial literacy classroom program. We provide all materials needed by the elementary, secondary and middle schools within our service area. This interactive curriculum has been enthusiastically received by students around the nation and in the Big Country.

Meet member Ashley B

ATFCU cares about their members and their community. What more could you ask for?

Ashley A., member since 2017

March of Dimes. We’re advocating for the tiniest Texans.

We’ve worked closely with the March of Dimes in West Texas to aid their mission of decreasing premature births. It is not an exaggeration to state that MOD’s research positively impacts the life of every child born in the United States.

The work continues. On a corporate level, the credit union has elected to donate a penny for every ATFCU debit card transaction made since the beginning of 2013.

Boys and Girls Club of Abilene is a positive place for kids to grow

Since 2004, members have had the opportunity to skip two loan payments each year for a modest $10 or $15 monthly fee.

All funds collected are forwarded to Abilene’s Boys and Girls Club to assist their meaningful work with Abilene’s children and teens. More than $2.2 million has been donated in the past 18 years.

On behalf of the kids, many thanks to our members for their continued participation!

Random acts of kindness

CU Around is a group of ATFCU employees getting out in the community spreading joy to others. We show up unannounced to perform random acts of kindness.

We have appeared at Chick-Fil-A on St. Patrick’s Day and bought lunch for those wearing green. We delivered lunch to the florists in town on Valentine’s Day. We supplied Dippin Dots ice cream for Zoo patrons on a hot summer evening. It brings so much joy to brighten the day of those around us.

Our most recent random project was delivering lunch and goodies to the UPS drivers working tirelessly to deliver Christmas. 2021 was an anxious time and we thank them for delivering our presents!

Be on the lookout for our team in their bright blue and orange shirts.
