How committed are you to the local community?

Capital Credit Union are extremely committed to the community and here to stay. For instance, the interest that Members pay on their loans is re-invested back into the local community. In an age where the banks are closing branches and reducing staff numbers we have maintained and increased our presence in the community for our Members. That’s what makes us more than a bank.

Also, every year we donate at least €50,000 to worthwhile causes, organisations, sports teams and schools in our community. A Community Council made up of local volunteers decide on all our sponsorship requests and how money is allocated 4 times a year.

Along with this, we support our young people through various schemes including our:

  • School Saving Scheme
  • Going Green Grant
  • Higher Education Scholarship

More information on all these can be found on our website at: https://capitalcu.ie/service/youth-services/ Be sure to follow our social media for frequent updates
