DoverPhila Federal Credit Union continues to strive in the financial industry while giving back as it wraps up its 65th year of serving Tuscarawas County.
The credit union gave back $1.5 million to its members. DoverPhila is a community-focused, not-for-profit financial institution controlled by its members making it possible to reward those members with a bonus dividend. The credit union’s financial success is also shared with its members through other fiscal opportunities such as low cost auto loans, higher interest rates on certificates of deposits (CDs), and a vast array of other products and services.
DoverPhila also gave back to its youngest members. To recognize youth members and their importance to the continued growth and success of the credit union, DoverPhila gave DP’s Kids Club and cu$aver account holders a $10 holiday bonus. To further the giving, the total holiday bonus amount of over $14,000 was matched and then donated to the local Salvation Army.
The credit union continued to establish relationships within Tuscarawas County through several sponsorships that included Union Hospital’s Run for Home, United Way of Tuscarawas County’s Color Us United 2k and Rock ‘n Run 5k, Tusky Days Festival, East Central Ohio ESC’s Family Reading Festival, and many youth athletic groups. The credit union donated to area organizations such as United Way of Tuscarawas County, Rainbow Connection, Leader’s Edge Anti-Virus Youth Character Education program, the local Salvation Army, Leadership Tuscarawas, Tuscarawas Clinic for the Working Uninsured, Kent State University Tuscarawas, Trinity Hospital Twin City, Tuscarawas County Philharmonic, Tuscarawas County Community Hospice, and many more.
This year marked considerable development and investment for the credit union. In mid-2018, the construction of an administrative building started behind the credit union’s main office located on Fillmore Avenue in Dover. The completion date is scheduled for early 2019. There was significant growth with its financial literacy initiative as it welcomed a second financial counselor, sponsored financial literacy in over 20 area high schools and elementary schools, and joined forces with OhioMeansJobs and United Way of Tuscarawas County to provide financial programs and resources to the community. The credit union also invested in new, state-of-the-art card readers with enhanced security and fraud protection at all ATMs. It’s the first financial institution in Tuscarawas County to provide this type of software.
DoverPhila Federal Credit Union is excited to welcome 2019 as it continues to serve and meet the needs of its members while building community. Anyone who lives, works, and attends church or school in Tuscarawas County can share in its success by making a simple $5 deposit at any of its five locations in Dover, New Philadelphia, Newcomerstown, and Uhrichsville.
