Making a difference is
worth every penny.

Use your card. Earn a penny.

Every time you swipe your WECU debit card in October and November, you'll earn a penny. And for every penny earned by all our members, WECU will donate a penny to great local causes throughout Whatcom County. Together, we can all make a difference this holiday season.

October pennies have been counted!

WECU members earned $14,325.94. Then, WECU matched these pennies to donate another $14,325.94 to local organizations supporting veterans in our community. That’s a lot of pennies!

This month’s Penny Jar recipients are
Growing Veterans
EAGLE Vets by Animals as Natural Therapy
Veterans Food Baskets by Bellingham Elks Lodge


How it Works

Just use your card as usual and everything will happen automatically. We’ll deposit the pennies you’ve earned into your account on the last day of each month. The deposit will be called “Penny Jar.” We will announce nonprofit awardees on Facebook and Instagram, so be sure to follow us as we make a meaningful difference throughout Whatcom County.

Some things to keep in mind: all purchases count (but not ATM, cash advance, Representative Payee, or Health Savings Account transactions) and there is no limit to the number of pennies you can earn. If you close your account before the last day of the month, you won’t receive your pennies.

Don't have a debit card yet?

The WECU debit card is a great everyday card and can be used everywhere Visa is accepted. Visit any of our convenient branch locations and we'll give you one on the spot!
