Joseph Fisher Memorial Scholarship
In honor of Joe Fisher who served the Credit Union as its President and Chairman from 1930 to 1990, the Board of Directors established a Memorial Scholarship in his name. His commitment and dedication to Everett Credit Union and credit union industry was a direct result of his personal experience in obtaining a car loan, not long after graduating from Harvard Law School.
The scholarship is available to any Everett resident who will be graduating High School in 2013 and attending college or other accredited post education program in the fall 2013. One or more scholarships will be awarded to public or private high school graduates who have been residents of Everett for at least one year. Applications are now available at local high schools, the Credit Union office located at 650 Broadway, Everett, MA and online by clicking here »
Application submission deadline is May 1, 2014.

Everett Credit Union UNITED WITH BREAD OF LIFE
Bread of Life is a volunteer organization serving the hungry, homeless, needy and isolated. In 2013, they provided the equivalent of 940,000 meals to the community, and the numbers keep growing. With such positive influence in the community, the Everett Credit Union decided to join in and help those in need. To support Bread of Life’s mission, ECU staff recently brought together a helpful donation with canned goods, non-perishable foods, household items and body care items. We can all make a difference by taking the extra step to help a hand in need.
