Staff Initiatives

The staff at the Credit Union are proud supporters of the community. For a small donation, on Fridays, staff are encouraged to wear jeans & their Macquarie Credit Union polo shirts. These funds are then used to donate to various charities within the local community. We also show our support by offering ‘in kind’ donations of time by giving up our lunch breaks and weekends to undertake tasks within the community.

Organisation’s supported by the Staff Charity Fundraising during this past year include-

Macquarie Credit Union Dream Festival

The Macquarie Credit Union Dream Festival is a community festival that embraces many facets of the arts to celebrate the communities’ creativity. Each festival brings a series of entertainment, theatre, dance, visual arts, music and outdoor events from local and professional groups and artists.
Each year the Macquarie Credit Union staff volunteer their Saturday afternoon/night for the festival’s Music & Markets in Victoria Park and are kept very busy selling glow products on behalf of the Dream Committee whilst handing out over 1,000 balloons on the night. Our team also marches in the popular Lantern Parade event during the night.

Meals on Wheels

For over 10 years Macquarie Credit Union has proudly volunteered their time to help deliver meals to members of the community.

McGrath Foundation

We are proud to "Pink Up" our branch and team during October in support of the McGrath Foundation. This is a cause close to many of our staff’s hearts and we are proud to raise funds for such a wonderful organisation.

Cocktail Party

The popular Member Cocktail Party Event was held at Bellotti’s Italian Dining on Friday 8th November 2019.  The event is a great opportunity for our Board, Staff and Members to socialise and enjoy a fun evening together. 

Melanoma March Dubbo

The Dubbo Melanoma March aims to raise awareness and funding for the Melanoma Institute of Australia. In March 2020, we promoted this event and the ‘Game on Mole’ awareness campaign by the Melanoma Institute of Australia. We proudly wore the ‘Game on Mole’ Fundraiser tee-shirts on Fridays and donated $400 from the Staff Charity Fund to the Dubbo Melanoma March Virtual Event!
