Our Story

Our Mission

We will improve the quality of life for children in need who are facing poverty, illness, developmental disabilities, developmental disorders, physical impairments, bullying and abuse.

DCU for Kids is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit charitable foundation founded in 2005 by DCU - better known as Digital Federal Credit Union. To date, DCU for Kids has made charitable donations that total over $8 million. Some of the organizations that we support includes Autism Speaks, Special Olympics, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Boston Children’s Hospital, Boys & Girls Clubs, Jumpstart for Children, Inc. and many others.

By funding support services, enrichment, and development activities, mentoring and education programs, medical research, and by providing scholarships, DCU for Kids is making a positive and lasting impact on thousands of children throughout DCU branch communities and beyond.

DCU for Kids net fundraising revenue is at 98%, all of which goes directly to children and families in need. All administrative and volunteer support is donated by DCU.
