Community | TAPCO Credit Union - Tacoma & Pierce County



We love you, Pierce County.

At TAPCO, we're dedicated to our members and the community we serve. While striving to provide the highest quality of products and services for our members, we are also dedicated to supporting several local community events and projects during the year that support our mission. Our employees generously donate their time and money to support these community programs. Together with our members and community partners, we are committed to making a positive impact in our community.

Metro Animal Shelter

Metro Animal Shelter

TAPCO staff made blankets to support the Metro Animal Shelter in Puyallup. There crafting skills will help our furry friends to be more comfortable and warm. In addition, staff donated pet food, treats and toys. Metro Animal Shelter protects and unites pets through support, advice, licensing and adoption of pets to their forever home. 

TAPCO staff loves supporting the community and looks forward to any opportunity to give back.

2020 Donations & Sponsorships Exceed $40,000

While COVID impacted our ability to attend some of our favorite events, it did not stop us from supporting our community!

TAPCO is grateful for each of these organizations, and how they play a role in keeping Pierce County strong. These organizations were chosen because they align with the our mission of “Improving lives by partnering with families to reach their goals.” Each organization exemplifies respect and care to those who need it most.

Together, in collaboration with our community partners, TAPCO continues to support our neighbors in Peirce County. TAPCO – South Sound strong since 1934!

National Night Out

City of Fircrest National Night Out

In partnership with the Fircrest Police Department and 16,000 neighborhoods across the nation, National Night Out is our opportunity to celebrate the summer, our community, and the strong ties we share with our local law enforcement. Every year, we look forward to taking the first Tuesday in August to get to know our neighbors.

6th Avenue Santa Parade

On a chilly Sunday night in December, you can find Team TAPCO marching along 6th Avenue spreading Christmas cheer with jolly carolers and Santa Claus following closely behind. We’re proud to sponsor this fun, festive family event to kick off the holiday season with our friends at the 6th Avenue Business District.

Art on the Ave

Art on the Ave

From State to Alder, Art on the Ave is Tacoma’s biggest festival! We turn the parking lot of our 6th Avenue branch into a stage for a summer afternoon full of live music, art, and uniquely Tacoma culture. With friends, neighbors, and creatives lining the street with a beer in hand, this summer festival is not to be missed!

Tacoma Farmer’s Market Apple-A-Day

For five years and counting, we’ve had the pleasure of serving as the title sponsor of the Tacoma Farmer’s Market Apple-A-Day program. In partnership with the market, this service benefits children and families in Pierce County by expanding access to fresh fruits and vegetables across all farmer’s market locations. We’re proud to support a program that celebrates local farmers and creates lifelong healthy eaters! Come see Moola the Cash Cow every third Thursday during the Broadway market season.

Credit Union Lunch Local Day

Each fall, we join thousands of credit unions around the country to dine out “cash mob” style in support of the local, small businesses that make our communities great. By taking our lunch break to order in from the deli on the corner or to grab a cup of coffee from a locally-owned espresso stand (while encouraging our members to join us), we’re taking a stand in support of local businesses in our community.

Polar Plunge

You can always count on Team TAPCO to be freezin’ for a reason as we brave the icy waters of the Puget Sound at the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Washington. In partnership with the Crime Stoppers of Tacoma and Pierce County, our team fundraising efforts help support 18,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities across Washington State. The cold is temporary—but the impact isn’t!
