Community Partnerships

UVA Community Credit Union partners with many different organizations and groups throughout the community. We are proud of our community involvement and financial literacy programs, which have touched the lives of many people. Here are just a few of the organizations we partner with on a regular basis:

The Thomas Jefferson Area Earned Income Tax Credit Coalition

UVA Community Credit Union is an active member of The Thomas Jefferson Area Earned Income Tax Credit Coalition which supports low- to moderate-income working families in Central Virginia.
The Coalition provides free tax preparation assistance and financial education and promotes the use of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) for eligible taxpayers.

The IRS estimates, 15 to 20 percent of eligible workers do not claim their EITC benefits. This statistic means that millions of dollars are not finding their way into the pockets of the working families and individuals who are eligible to save. As a result, too many people are going without a savings they could be using to help care for their family, as well as providing a beneficial injection of funds into their local economy.

We're proud to help bring this beneficial program to our community.
