Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union had an amazing year in 2017. We are committed to serving our communities, the people who live in them and the non-profit organizations that work so hard to help those in need. We not only strive to help our members make smart financial choices, we also support the lives of people in our community by providing assistance with food, shelter, clothing, health and education. Thank you to our members, our employees and our supporters for walking alongside us each day, and for helping us make 2017 such an incredible year.

Looking Forward to 2018

As we ring in this new year, we look forward to continuing our mission, and to serving our community, our members and our employees. Here's to making 2018 another successful year!

Casual for a Cause

On one Tuesday each month, we will dress “Casual for a Cause”. In exchange for a donation to the selected organization each month, our employees will be invited to wear jeans, sneakers and their new Casual for a Cause shirts. We are excited to institute yet another way to help support so many worthy local non-profits.

We Share A Common Thread Foundation Fundraiser

Save the date! Our eighth annual We Share A Common Thread Foundation Fundraiser will be held on Saturday, February 24th. We hope you can join us for a fun-filled night of music, games, raffle prizes and more. All proceeds raised from the event will be donated directly to dozens of non-profit organizations to assist in their mission of helping our community members in need.

Give-A-Click 2018

Our Give-A-Click program has been going strong since 2011. Each quarter, we feature three non-profits on our We Share A Common Thread website and YOU have the chance to vote for your favorite. The organization at the end of the quarter with the most votes wins a $1,500 donation!

Scholarships for college students

Moving on to college is such a huge, but expensive, milestone for many of our members. We are pleased to offer two scholarship opportunities for current college students and college bound high school seniors to assist with the cost of higher education. Applications for our MoneyStrong College Scholarship and the Massachusetts Cooperative Credit Union Association Scholarship are currently available for the 2018-2019 school year.

Small Act That Gives Back at Market Basket
Small Act That Gives Back at Market Basket

We recently surprised shoppers at Market Basket on Fletcher Street in Lowell with Market Basket gift cards and a free tote bag as a random act of kindness, or as we like to call it a Small Act That Gives Back. We certainly enjoyed seeing the smiles on our community members’ faces as they received a little gift to help with their grocery shopping.

Small Act That Gives Back at Muffins on Main

Our Small Acts That Give Back continued into the weekend, this time at Muffins on Main in Westford. Customers received a special surprise as they placed their order, and were inspired to pay it forward to other customers waiting in line. Visitors at Muffins on Main left motivated to extend their own community support to organizations in their neighborhoods.

On January 23rd, we held our first "Casual for a Cause" day, raising $650 to support the Humane Society for Greater Nashua. Employees were invited to dress in jeans, sneakers and their new Casual for a Cause shirts in exchange for a minimum donation. The Credit Union looks forward to holding these Casual for a Cause events one Tuesday each month throughout the year to support 12 local non-profit organizations.
