As a member-owned, community-based financial institution, Direct Financial is not only a reflection of the communities we serve, but an active participant. We firmly believe that the responsibilities of citizenship extend to organizations like ours, and we work everyday to improve the well-being – financial and otherwise – of the individuals and communities we serve.
NEFCU and Direct Financial’s Community Giving Program actively supports organizations and programs that move our community forward in the critical areas of nursing and science education, and financial literacy.
We gladly support worthy non-profit organizations and programs that share our commitment to enhancing the well-being of our local communities.
While we cannot meet every request, we encourage interested organizations to read our Community Giving Policy and submit a formal application. Qualified applications are reviewed quarterly and entered in a random drawing to determine award recipients.
Direct Financial, a division of New England Federal Credit Union, is proud to support and assist aspiring scholars by awarding annual financial scholarships in two particular areas of study.
The 2020 application deadline for the Nursing and STEM scholarships has passed. Applications for 2021 will be available early in the year.
