“Unprecedented” and “2020” may well be synonyms by now. The global pandemic created a year unlike any other, it challenged us, it rocked us to the core. “Rising Together” speaks to upward mobility and positive development, and the way in which we do business, from a collective base that binds us a people and as community.
Our 2020 Impact Report outlines the many ways that DC Credit Union stepped up to serve our members through an unpredictable and difficult time. Featuring stories from real members, the report also includes statements from our Board Chairperson, Board Treasurer, Supervisory Committee, and an Independent Auditor, along with statements of our financial condition and comprehensive income.
Putting people before profit sometimes involves short-term financial sacrifices, but we know that by prioritizing our members, we’ll emerge stronger together.View or download our 2020 Impact Report
