Community Giving

Community Giving Santa Days Event

Without the community, there is no Michigan First. In 1926, when we established ourselves as the Detroit Teachers Credit Union, our team set a standard for service–dedicating themselves to making Michigan a better place to live, work, play, and–of course–bank. Each year, our team members 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, Michigan First partners up with Southfield Goodfellows to make the holidays special for those in need. From toys, books, clothing and more, our team is committed to giving children a magical holiday experience.
