Community Involvement

CCATCU supports, sponsors and participates in activities to benefit the local community throughout the year. We're committed to helping our communities become stronger and financially healthier. Some of the ways you'll see our involvement:

Scholarship Awards

Every year, CCATCU awards 10 - $1000 scholarships to deserving high school seniors and undergraduates.  Visit us again in December 2020 for your chance to apply!

Howdy Daze/Steppin Up & Out Fitness Event

Howdy Daze is a FREE annual event, open to the community hosted by CCATCU and the FOCUS Foundation and held in Spring of each year.  The Credit Union provides free food and entertainment and invites vendors to provide educational and fun activities for the kids.  Previous vendors have included the United States Marines, Texas State Aquarium and Texas A&M Wetlands on Wheels among many others.  The annual Fitness Event is held in conjunction with Howdy Daze and is one of the many fundraisers the Credit Union supports benefitting the FOCUS Foundation.  Local fitness groups are invited to demo their classes - zumba, crossfit and more!  Attendees are encouraged to participate.

Waffle Breakfast

Our annual Waffle Breakfast fundraiser  is held in November or December each year.  Proceeds benefit the FOCUS Foundation.  Join us for live entertainment while enjoying delicious waffles.  It's a great family affair.

Financial Literacy for Youth

The Credit Union believes in preparing our youth for the real world through education.  That's why we've partnered with both the NEFE (National Endowment for Financial Education) and Junior Achievement Programs.  The goal of both programs is to ready our children for the future.  If you're interested in having a CCATCU Representative present either program at your school or organization, please contact us.

Driscoll Children's Hospital

It's all about the kids!!  CCATCU helps throughout the year by maintaining kiosks at various branch locations, selling candy and volunteering for different events such as the annual Children's Miracle Network Telethon and Chemo Fish-Off.

FOCUS Foundation

CCATCU and Staff raise money throughout the year with fundraisers in support of the FOCUS Foundation.  The FOCUS Foundation benefits the children within Nueces and the surrounding counties by providing grants to schools and organizations for educational purposes and more.

Charitable Donations

CCATCU employees make contributions through payroll deduction each pay period.  These deductions go towards a local non-profit organization of the employees choice.  In 2019, those were  the Coastal Bend Food Bank, Mother Theresa Shelter or the Rainbow Room.
