In The Community
Generosity extends to our community too.
We are proud of our association with organisations that promote ideas similar to SCU. We are particularly selective in our partner programs as they must demonstrate a benefit to the community, hence working with the Newtown Jets RLFC, Surf Life Saving, Student Scholarships, Children's sporting clubs to name a few is very satisfying.
We are also proud of our association with Credit Union Foundation Australia, an organisation that promotes social responsibility by empowering communities through access to affordable financial services both domestically and internationally. This program has successfully encouraged staff involvement in activities both overseas and at home and staff actively participates in raising funds for those less fortunate.
SCU is proud to be the major sponsor The Newtown Jets, the oldest rugby league club in Australia.
This sponsorship is a first for SCU and the Jets and which was secured at the start of the 2012 Rugby League season.
The Newtown Rugby League Football Club is in its 104th year of rugby league competition. SCU is very excited to be supporting one of Sydney’s most iconic sporting organisations. They play at Henson Park Marrickville and are one of the most supported and well known teams in the NSW Cup, acting as a feeder club to the Sydney Roosters.
This sponsorship represents SCU’s commitment to benefit local community interests, especially in Sydney’s inner west and western suburbs where so many of our members reside.
Just like SCU, the Newtown Jets have a long and proud history in Sydney and the Jets continue to enjoy widespread recognition and support among followers of rugby league.
The SCU logo appears prominently placed on the on-field clothing of both the Newtown Jets and their affiliated team in Parkes, Central NSW, the Parkes Spacemen.

The Credit Union believes the Coogee Surf Life Saving Club, offers a real sense of community spirit. The club offers a great way to meet new people, support the community, keep fit or just have fun.
We have been long-time supporters of Coogee Surf Clubs IRB area. The IRB is known as the surf clubs most visible and effective surf life saving tool on any beach and are affectionately known as ‘rubber duckies’.
Support from us is an integral component to running these invaluable life saving tools.
We offer each year a Scholarship which is awarded to a club volunteer who is doing some sort of full time study and offering his/her time to this fantastic community safety organisation.
We are concerned about youth and provide school scholarships to schools in our local communities. The winner of the awards are chosen by each of the participating school and the criteria is set by each individual school and mainly are given to either year ten or twelve students.
Some schools give the award to the high achievers as a reward for a great effort. Other schools give the awards to students who have ability but have some time of misfortune in their life or home pressures.
The following schools receive our Scholarships:
- JJ Cahill Memorial High, Mascot
- Patrician Brothers, Blacktown
Support of local community minded clubs:
