Arizona Federal is dedicated to making a difference in the communities we serve by supporting local nonprofits across Arizona.

Who We Help

The credit union assists a wide variety of worthy organizations in our communities. Our primary areas of focus are:


Equality/Social Inclusion

Community Services

Children & Youth


Local Artist, Local Causes Debit Card Giveback Program

With Arizona Federal Credit Union’s Local Artist, Local Causes Visa® Debit Card, each time you make a purchase with the card, the credit union will make a donation to a community fund that helps support nonprofits throughout Arizona.

Support Local

When you choose to bank locally instead of at one of the big banks, you help keep more money in Arizona and ensure Arizona residents and small businesses have access to financial services and capital.

See how the Local Artist, Local Causes debit card program is helping organizations like Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels and Million Dollar Teacher Project.

Arizona Federal Credit Union Community Fund

We’ve heard from our members, and they love to support local nonprofits through our debit card giveback programs. That's why we created the Local Artist, Local Causes debit card.

You Spend. We donate.

With our Local Artist, Local Causes debit card, every time you make a purchase, the credit union makes a contribution to the Arizona Federal Community Fund.

Who gets the money?

Twice a year, the funds are granted to smaller nonprofit organizations throughout Arizona to support their critical programs.
