Mountain America Credit Union is committed to the philosophy of people helping people. We do our best to help support nonprofit organizations in the areas where our members live, work and play.

 

Nonprofit organizations we support

 

Believing in the credit union philosophy of people helping people, Mountain America is dedicated to supporting hundreds of charities, nonprofit organizations and schools whose programs are improving lives and providing valuable community resources.

Financial literacy
Mountain America is heavily invested in a broad array of adult and youth financial literacy efforts. Our financial education is aimed at helping individuals and families become motivated to take action, develop a plan and live balanced lives. Financial literacy tools are available to members and the general public alike.

In addition, the credit union produces financial literacy publications in conjunction with the Deseret News and Newspapers in Education. This tool is available at no cost to thousands of students in more than 250 classrooms throughout Utah. Our goal is to help students, members and the general public learn more about budgeting, saving, spending, using credit wisely and protecting their identity.

Mountain America also hosts educational seminars every year at its corporate offices, the expo center, in our branches and at Select Employer Group (SEG) work sites. Topics include:

  • Home buying

  • Retirement planning, including for Medicare

  • Credit score strategy

  • Debt repayment

  • Business planning
