Partner Spotlight: Chief Financial Credit Union

As the saying goes, it takes a village, and it certainly takes a village to make the work that we do here at Leader Dogs for the Blind possible. An important community within the village is our corporate partners, and one of these valued partners is Chief Financial Credit Union. Chief Financial moved into the Rochester Hills community in 2015 and has supported us from the very beginning—even stepping up to be the very first official credit union of Leader Dog.

When I approached Chief Financial about being the presenting sponsor of our inaugural Bark & Brew event, they immediately agreed. Their contributions were crucial to the event’s success (we had over 2,000 attendees!).

During Bark & Brew, Chief Financial unveiled the extremely cute Leader Dog Rewards Visa card (featuring one of our own yellow Labrador puppies). They even designed the rewards with us in mind because when you make purchases with a Leader Dog Rewards Visa, Chief Financial matches the dollar amount you earn in rewards with a donation to Leader Dog.

Chief Financial is a full-service credit union with a heart. Even while they’re busy excelling at what they do (and offering business and consumer loans, a competitive rate on deposits, and more), they are passionate about giving their time and support back to the community they serve. This makes us proud to call them a Leader Dog corporate partner.
