CFCU Summer Concert Series
Quality of Life
So many businesses and people make our community a very special place. We enjoy a high quality of arts and culture thanks to support of public art and community building assets. CFCU is proud to again be sponsoring the Summer Concert Series in Downtown Ithaca. Concerts are FREE and open to the public.
15th Anniversary Grant Award to CFCU for Historic Ithaca
Historic Ithaca

We hosted the Tompkins County Chamber AfterHours in February 2015 which included a special drawing for one business in attendance to win a $1,500 selected by them. CFCU staff member Martha Preston drew the winning card and selected Historic Ithaca as the grantee to honor outgoing director Alphonse Pieper.
Volunteering and Support
CFCU loves to be involved in the community. They believe that when communities thrive, they thrive as a business and provider of financial services. They believe, as does Community Foundation, that by working together we can all create an amazing place to live and work. Learn more about the many community activities of CFCU.
