GECU Foundation


The GECU Foundation embraces the credit union’s dedication to the people helping people philosophy by supporting charitable causes that enrich our community and improve the lives of the people that live in it.

We work to reach the underserved parts of our community through education, community programs, charitable giving, volunteerism, community and stakeholder partnerships, scholarships, and fundraising. In 2019, we donated more than $400,000 in charitable contributions, including the El Paso Strong charitable account, El Pasoans Fighting Hunger, and other education and charitable organizations.
