Your Community Foundation
Established in August 2019, Your Community Foundation was formed in response to the needs and resource deficiency affecting the community of Wayne County. For more than 60 years, Your NC Community Credit Union has steered programs aided in the relief and empowerment of individuals and families that reside in our community. Your Community Foundation is an extension of NCCFCU efforts and community support, established over six decades ago.
By partnering with local organizations and providing support to current local plans geared to revitalize, we aim to collectively increase the number of available resources, tools, and educational hubs to help alleviate poverty and raise awareness amongst underserved areas in our community. Your NC Community Credit Union’s core is rooted in establishing an environment that supports the growth of our member’s financial success and wellness. Your Community Foundation was created to transcend our outreach efforts, and be a leading example of what local support can accomplish.
We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, donations made are tax-deductible.

Some of these include: special events, and care packages containing items of encouragement including a Bible.
