#PeopleHelpingPeople — a fun thing we take seriously.


Community & Sponsorship

At Velocity, we view our community relations as a commitment, not an afterthought. We believe in the credit union philosophy of “people helping people” and we take our social responsibility seriously. We were born and raised right here in Austin, and folks here have trusted us for more than 75 years. We are proud and humbled to be able to give back to our communities as an active participant in the area’s welfare.

Civic Pride

We proudly support organizations that help improve our members’ lives through financial education, safety, and wellness. We participate in city-sponsored events with community partners including the Austin Police Department and Austin and Cedar Park Chambers of Commerce, as well as many non-profit organizations whose goal is to help our members, their children, pets, and veterans. Additionally, we help support local businesses through the Austin Independent Business Alliance (AIBA).

The Arts

We are a proud supporter of the Austin Theatre Alliance and a long-time corporate sponsor of the historic Paramount Theatre.


Scholarship Program

Each year, our Board of Directors awards three members who are graduating seniors a $5,000 scholarship to the college or university of their choice. An ongoing scholarship of $3,000 is available to previous years’ awardees. We have awarded nearly $300,000 in scholarships over the past 30+ years. Applications for the next year will be available online and at any Velocity branch by mid-January.

We do our best to support worthy causes that benefit the community as a whole. We would like to be able to help everybody but, because we receive so many worthwhile requests, we must place some priorities and limits on our participation. Here are our guidelines for donations and sponsorships.

  • We must limit our support to causes that benefit many within the community, versus individual causes or needs.
  • We will donate only where we believe we can have a meaningful impact.
  • In order to maintain balance and neutrality, organizations tied directly to political affiliations or organized religions are not eligible.

Requests for sponsorships or donations must be submitted in written form.
