What is PEOPLEMatter?

As a financial cooperative that is committed to living out the generous spirit of the credit union industry, Northwest Georgia Credit Union believes that community partnership is powerful. The credit union motto of "People Helping People" drives us to actively enrich the lives of people in the Greater Rome community. For this reason, we are dedicated to a focused mission of giving back to those who support us through our PEOPLEMatter initiative.

Through charitable donations, sponsorships, community initiatives, and employee volunteerism, NWGACU passionately seeks opportunities to help organizations and non-profits in the Greater Rome community that focus on the causes that matter to our members, Sponsor Employee Groups, employees, and volunteers. These causes are local education, financial literacy, children, and health.
