Community Involvement

Since it’s inception in 1951, Silver State Schools Credit Union (SSSCU) has been deeply rooted in the Southern Nevada community, focusing on improving and strengthening the region it serves. The Credit Union created the employee-driven Community Involvement Committee to stay active and give back to locals in need. The committee is made up of employee volunteers from every branch and department. Additionally, as a whole, SSSCU focuses many efforts towards community-centric projects and organizations.







 Piggy Bank

The Piggy Bank program was started through a partnership between SSSCU, The Andson Foundation, United Way of Southern Nevada and Young Professional Society. The one of a kind financial literacy program simulates a traditional banking experience at three local elementary schools. The emphasis is on teaching the students about saving money, goal setting and real world application. Students graduate the program in the 5th grade with a better understanding of how to make smart financial decisions.

Light the Night            

Team SSSCU continues to be a top corporate fundraiser for LLS’s annual Light the Night walk, which celebrates and commemorates lives touched by cancer. The Credit Union was especially inspired by former coworker and Light the Night captain Jenny Chester who sadly lost her battle with cancer. Team SSSCU raises funds through donations, bake sales, raffles and employee events. If you would like to join Team SSSCU in raising money for LLS’s Light the Night walk, please click here.


Children's Miracle Network     

SSSCU is a proud member of Credit Unions for Kids - a nonprofit collaboration of credit unions engaged in fundraising and activities benefiting Children’s Miracle Network. SSSCU employees raise money and donate their time at local Children’s Miracle Network hospital, St. Rose Dominican Hospital.


Focus Schools


Through a partnership with the Clark County Schools District, SSSCU has designated three elementary schools as “focus schools”, H.P. Fitzgerald E.S., Rex Bell E.S., and Stanford E.S.

SSSCU works with each focus school to fulfill a multitude of needs on campus such as sock drives, coat drives, toy drives and donating books for literacy night. The Credit Union is an annual participant in teacher appreciation week.


Operation Kid Safe


In partnership with Findlay Chevrolet, SSSCU helped bring the first children’s fingerprinting system to Southern Nevada. Housed inside Findlay Chevrolet, parents can have their children’s headshot taken and fingerprinted for free and all records stay with the parents for safe keeping in case of an emergency.  For more information, please click here.
