Our Community Involvement
Neighbors serving neighbors
At WSECU we champion strong communities throughout our great state. For us, this means giving everyone an equal opportunity to achieve financial goals that meet their needs. Above all, we’re committed to improving the lives of our members, employees and all Washingtonians.
Areas we support financially:
Our 3 pillars of giving
Education remains a great equalizer. Central to our mission are partnerships with youth-focused organizations centered around education, such as GEAR UP, Boys & Girls Clubs, Communities in Schools, Junior Achievement, LifeSmarts and public higher education, with an emphasis on supporting first-generation college students and students of color.
We’re dedicated to helping people — no matter where they are on their financial journey — including support for basic needs programs that address food scarcity, shelter, senior services and more. We’re proud to work with organizations such as Second Harvest and Habitat for Humanity, and to help groups with financial wellness classes.
Public employees and assets
Our history is rooted in public service. WSECU was founded by public employees dedicated to advancing our common good. Supporting people, programs and events that expand access to our shared public treasures isn’t just central to our mission. It’s who we are.

A long-standing commitment to education
We’ve embarked on a multiyear partnership with University of Washington’s Tacoma and Bothell branch campuses to support student success, especially for underrepresented students of color.
Empowering employees to give
Our "Up to Some Good” program reimburses every employee $100 to pay it forward, every year — however they see fit. So far, employees have helped hundreds of people and organizations through small gestures of kindness, from filling up a neighbor’s gas tank to crossing supplies off animal shelters’ wish lists.
