Community Giving

Without the community, Michigan First would not be where it is today. After our establishment in 1926, our team set a standard for service–by dedicating ourselves to making Michigan a better place to live, work, play and bank. Each year, our team members come together to donate resources, time and thousands of dollars to support the local community.

Michigan First Foundation

The Michigan First Foundation is a non-profit owned by Michigan First Credit Union. Each year, the Foundation focuses on funding scholarship programs for high school and college students, and raises money for charitable community organizations. In some instances, the Foundation supports individuals for general or specific purposes.  For more information, visit 


Every year, we look forward to partnering with the Southfield Goodfellows. Together, we make the holidays special for those in need. By donating money for toys, books, games, clothes and more, our team commits to creating a magical holiday experience for the children.
