COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Community Involvement


Proudly serving the Clarksville, Fort Campbell, Oak Grove, and Hopkinsville communities for 60 years, the commitment of Fortera Credit Union to the community goes much deeper than providing quality financial services. We enjoy being active in many community organizations and events whether as a sponsor, through donations or with the volunteerism of our employees. 

While you can see our professional staff members at our ten branch locations, you will probably run into them at the community festivals, conducting a seminar for soldiers on Fort Campbell, or lending a helping hand as a volunteer for United Way. 

From the giving hearts of our employees in time and talent, to the treasure provided to numerous organizations and events, your Credit Union lends a hand!
