Vacaville, CA – January is Financial Wellness month, and Travis Credit Union has all the tools necessary to help those who are looking to reassess and reboot their relationship with money at the start of the New Year and the beginning of tax-filing season. As the pandemic has extended beyond a health crisis into an economic crisis, as well, a recent Harris Poll survey indicated many Americans wished they had better money management skills.

Vacaville, CA – While the challenges of 2020 are unprecedented, there were more opportunities this year than in Travis Credit Union’s 70-year history to create value for our members and local community. In a nine-month span, Travis Credit Union implemented multiple financial relief initiatives for members and distributed more than three million dollars to community partners providing essential services, all while serving and advocating for our members and neighbors in new and creative ways.

Vacaville, CA – Although the pandemic has slightly changed how Travis Credit Union gives back to our community this holiday season, it hasn’t impacted our level of support and commitment to ensure programs we’ve partnered with for years are still provided for and championed. As we have done for many years, TCU reached out to the community through many different programs, including participation in the Children's Miracle Network Holiday Stocking Campaign, the Travis Air Force Base Festival of Trees Auction and Christmas Wish 2020, among others.

Vacaville, CA – The Travis Credit Union Foundation announced that it raised over $1M for the COVID-19 Relief Initiative, which was matched by Travis Credit Union, for a total of $2M which will be distributed to 83 local community organizations, many who are providing resources and services to individuals and families impacted by the pandemic. Travis Credit Union matched every dollar raised by the Travis Credit Union Foundation up to $20,000, for a maximum of $40,000 total per agency. The campaign culminated on September 30.
