SFCU employees created the ReachOut! program in 1999 to help in our mission to give back to the local community. Every penny raised goes directly to those we help.


ReachOut! supports local foodbanks and accepts donations throughout the year.

ReachOut! awards a $2,000 scholarship each year to a talented area student to help them attend the college or university of their choice. The program is open each spring to high school seniors who will attend college in the fall and who are SFCU members or dependents of members.

Since 2003, ReachOut! has held an annual toy drive and distributed hundreds of toys to local charities that, in turn, distribute the toys to families in need.

How to ReachOut!

The more people who get involved, the more we can help people in our community. You can donate items or money during our fundraising events held throughout the year. Donations are gratefully accepted anytime at our branch and 100% of your donations go directly to the agencies, individuals and families we help.
