Who We Are
ECCU Cares Foundation is a charitable organization formed and operated by the employees of Energy Capital Credit Union in Houston, Texas. The mission of the Foundation is to protect and empower our communities through grants that support two focus areas: environment and education.
How We Work
The ECCU Cares Foundation is run by a Board of volunteers made up of employees from Energy Capital Credit Union. ECCU’s employees are donors to the foundation, and are willing to volunteer their time to ensure the successful promotion of our areas of focus.
The Foundation’s Board is made up of four committees: Charity Research, Donation Advisors, Volunteerism and Outreach. These committees are set up to ensure that all grants provided by the Foundation are going to efforts that support our focus areas and align with Credit Union Principles. In addition to volunteering their time to manage the Foundation, ECCU’s employees also volunteer their time in the community.
Funds for the foundation are raised through generous donors, staff, family, friends and members. Anyone may donate and donations are tax deductible.
