Celebrating Our Credit Union’s Mission of Financial Inclusion
Since DGEFCU’s founding in 1954, our mission has been to create financial inclusion and provide access to affordable credit. That is why we are proud to support the Mayor’s Financially Fit DC Initiative.
The five pillars of this initiative — making a budget, managing credit, buying a home, planning for retirement, and building wealth — are areas we work with members on daily. The overall goal of the five pillars initiative, to help individuals and families in the district achieve financial freedom, is aligned with our mission as your credit union.
In this spirit of financial inclusion, we are holding the annual meeting this year to the R.I.S.E Demonstration Center.
The R.I.S.E. Demonstration Center introduces the St. Elizabeth’s East redevelopment as a forward-thinking, vibrant, world-class project and gateway to the District’s 2050 economy. Selected by the community, the name R.I.S.E. stands for Relate, Innovate, Stimulate and Elevate.
An historic gem in the middle of the nation’s capital, St. Elizabeth’s East is located at the site of a formerly self-contained mental health community — St. Elizabeth’s Hospital. Once a source of economic stability for neighborhoods east of the Anacostia River, this campus is surrounded by the rich and complex history of communities that are an essential part of the story of the District of Columbia. Its associations with some of America’s most famous people and events, coupled with a once-celebrated past of architectural innovation and landscape design, make it a largely historic treasure.
We hope you will join us in celebrating DGEFCU’s many accomplishments to date in the area of financial inclusion and we want to thank you for being a part of our continuing work to ensure financial freedom and access to credit for all in the DC community.
