Our Story

On July 17, 2017, Y-12 Federal Credit Union formed our Y-12 FCU Gives Foundation, which was founded to extend our organization's legacy mission of "people helping people" into the philanthropic realm of charitable giving and support.

Y-12 Federal Credit Union CEO Mark Ziegler was instrumental in the formation of the Gives Foundation as he saw the positive difference a foundation can make in the local community at his former credit union. "We need to take care of the community we serve by serving the underserved.  We have been successful as an organization and the right thing to do is give back to the communities", said Ziegler.

For information regarding grant requests, please access our grant request guideline below.



The vision of Y-12 FCU's charitable foundation is to provide employees with opportunities to serve the communities in which they live and to partner with organizations and causes in which we believe.


The mission of the foundation is to support the needs of organizations that align with our core foundation values  which focus on educational initiatives,  health and wellness and emerging community needs.
