Community Involvement

At PNCU, community involvement goes beyond business relationships. We want to make an impact in every community we serve.  We volunteer our time, donate money and we give from the heart. Caring is one of the things we do best. We believe a strong community provides the foundation for the quality of life and positive environment our members and community deserves. Since 1921, we take pride in supporting members and the communities in which we serve.

Through our constant volunteer efforts, meeting with local leaders & business owners to help our communities grow, providing financial assistance and education including for those in low to moderate income communities, check out what PNCU is doing in your community.
