Community Recovery Initiative


We're All In This Together. Invest in Self-Help's Community Recovery Initiative

People across the United States are struggling right now. Unfortunately, the effects of COVID-19 won’t be short-term and will have the most severe impact on the communities we've been serving for the past 40 years. We're well positioned to support them during these uncertain times—but we need your deposits to do it.

Consider joining our Community Recovery Initiative by opening a Community Recovery Term Certificate or money market account.

Benefits of Investing:

  • Multiple account options: term certificates or money market accounts.
  • Your funds help support the communities most impacted by COVID-19.
  • Deposit products are open to anyone who wants to invest in supporting communities: foundations, nonprofits, corporations, municipalities, individuals and more.
  • Funds are insured up by NCUA up to $250,000 per credit union. (Visit our sister credit union, Self-Help CU, to have an additional $250,000 federally insured.)
