Community Partner Hub
We’re excited about your interest in our Commitment to Community Initiative!
We welcome area organizations with similar and complementary missions to that of the credit union to participate in our Commitment to Community Initiative! Community partnerships can be formed as general partnerships, grant-based partnerships, or a combination of both. Our partnership opportunities are not contractual and withdrawal can be done at any time by contacting the TN Members 1st marketing department at email@example.com.
All partnerships are reviewed on a regular basis by the credit union leadership team and Board of Directors. Becoming a community partner with TN Members 1st does not guarantee a specific number or dollar amount of contributions from the credit union to the community partner each year.
- Education: Providing information and resources from trusted community partners.
- Engagement: Sharing information about and participating in opportunities to give back to the areas we serve.
