Imagine saving the life of a baby that is so small his foot fits inside his mothers wedding ring.

Imagine a family being saved from a house fire because the daughter learned about fire safety from a fire safety bounce house.

Imagine a park that is now used by the community because it's playground equipment is updated.

This and many more things is what YOUR Frankenmuth Credit Union Foundation for Our Communities has, and is, doing in the communities we all live in. Your foundation has been able to help provide funding that is truly making a positive impact around you. Sure, Frankenmuth Credit Union could have gone the easy route and paid all our members patronage dividends ranging from $.10 to $25, but what impact would that have really made on your pocket book? What would have been the best way to calculate how people should get paid out? Instead those dollars were used to fund your foundation. You, and the rest of the owners of Frankenmuth Credit Union, are saving lives and improving communities - and that my friends, is something to be proud of.
