Denver Community Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative whose mission is to make a difference in members' lives by providing financial opportunity. To that end, Denver Community established a financial education program in 2005 which is now known as the Clear Money Program.
Since its inception in 2005, Denver Community has reached 24,000 people with financial education through 1,882 offerings, including educational classes, coaching sessions, and podcasts (as of December, 2017). In 2017 alone, the Clear Money Program educated over 4,700 people.
The Clear Money Program has worked with hundreds of local organizations to offer free classes for their clients and staff, primarily focusing on non-profits and local businesses reaching the under-served, including Warren Village, Mi Casa Resource Center, Denver Health, the City and County of Denver, Mile High United Way, Jefferson County, and Veterans Green Jobs.
In addition to its free financial education programming, Denver Community has locally donated over $200,000 locally since 2005 with no tax or government incentive to do so. Some beneficiaries include Denver Public Library, Rocky Mountain MicroFinance Institute (RMMFI), Emily Griffith Technical College, Mi Casa Resource Center, Mount Saint Vincent, Newborns in Need, and Homes for Our Troops.
