$100,000 DONATION!!
Date Posted: Feb 06, 2020


For a number of years, the community of Raymore was without any banking services. For this reason, a few interested people gathered on November 25, 1949 to organize a cooperative credit union. At that time, Raymore Savings & Credit Union had no building. The first business transactions were carried out at the back of the Co-op Store. 


70 years later, the community of Raymore finds itself in a similar situation; with a lack of childcare in our community.  On March 27, 2019 a group of approximately 25 individuals from the community gathered to discuss the potential of a community daycare facility.  With a unanimous vote, it was determined Raymore and surrounding communities would benefit from a Daycare facility.  A formal Board of 7 members was created to lead this initiative.


Working together, growing communities is an important aspect of Raymore Credit Union’s vision.  Thank you to the members for 70+ years of support, which in turn has allowed RCU to give back to their communities.  Raymore Credit Union board of directors & staff are excited to support another community project initiative with the donation of $100,000 to the Raymore Community Daycare!  Five years ago, Raymore Credit Union also donated $100,000 to the local swimming pool.  RCU believes in their communities and takes pride in the ability to support local organizations. It’s the Credit Union difference!


A quote from 70 years ago:  “From a meagre beginning in November of 1949 by a group of Raymore community and district citizens, our Savings & Credit Union has grown into an organization that we can be proud of.  I think it can be said that members working and saving together are responsible for a great amount of progress and prosperity in the Raymore area.”
