In Our Community
As a financial co-operative, Coastal Financial Credit Union is committed to supporting the economic and social development of our community. As the only locally owned financial institution, we work to improve the communities we serve.
Our rich tradition of community involvement, includes loans to members and small businesses, investment in community projects such as the local Farmers Markets, the YMCA, the Yarmouth Food Bank, sponsorship of many community activities and events such as: Major Event Sponsor of Les Jeux de l’Acadie, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Yarmouth Hospital Foundation, festivals such as the Yarmouth Seafest, Argyle Abuptic Festival, Wedgeport Tuna Tournament, and various other local community festivals. In addition, CFCU sponsors many events that enhance our unique culture such as the Par-en-Bas Theatre, as well as various local youth sporting or educational groups and student bursaries, just to name a few.
We are also pleased to be able to provide public education programs such as Junior Achiever to foster personal financial well-being. Our employees are active in the community as members of chambers of commerce, church groups, service organizations, charitable organizations, volunteers at the Yarmouth and Argyle Farmers' Markets, and numerous other activities.
In addition to the above, we are proud to promote our community in any way we can. One example can be found in a June 2015 feature on Yarmouth in Progress Magazine found here.
