Earning Certificates for Financial Wellness

Financial Wellness has been a big focus at Jeanne D'Arc Credit Union this year. Our new program, A Healthier You, offers an interactive learning experience for our employees on 24 different financial topics. Not only do they receive great prizes when they finish a set of modules, but they also receive a Certificate of Achievement to recognize their hard work and dedication to improving their financial lives. Each day, we help our members make smart financial choices, and we know it's important for us to make our own.

Congratulations to all our employees who have earned their Certificates!


Honoring a friend of our communities.

The Steve Jones Legacy Fund was established to raise money for the organizations that Steve worked so tirelessly to assist.

We're proud to announce that the Fund quickly reached its fundraising goal of $100,000 and has made the first disbursement of funds to these great local non-profit organizations.

The Fund will continue to accept donations to aid local organizations. Please help us keep it growing.

Fall Fun at Parlee Farms

Employees recently joined together for a fun day out at Parlee Farms in Tyngsboro. Despite the rainy weather, our team members had a blast picking apples and enjoyed apple cider donuts. Thank you to our Employee Activities Committee for holding such a fun fall event for our staff and their families.

Graduation day for managers and supervisors

Several of our managers and supervisors recently completed a seven-month program to equip them with the tools and education they need to be successful leaders within the Credit Union. The program was developed and implemented by our very dedicated Employee Development Team. The curriculum-based training program began in March and ran through September. Each participant was required to complete a core course curriculum, as well as two electives. To celebrate the completion of the core classes, the students enjoyed a team building experience at Key to Escape in Nashua, NH. Congratulations to all for your achievements!

The award recognizes individuals in the credit union industry who dedicate their time and energy to help others within the local community and extend their support to various charities and organizations. Throughout his 10 years as our President and CEO, Mark has been a dedicated leader in the community and has inspired our employees to volunteer 8,000 hours of their own time to various non-profits each year. Thank you, Mark, for your commitment to Jeanne D'Arc and to the entire community, and congratulations on receiving the Credit Union Heroes Award!
