Become a Volunteer at Donegal Town Credit Union
The first Irish Credit Unions were made possible by volunteers, at a time of economic stress, helping to steer communities back onto the path of prosperity and security. That was over 50 years ago and we now have over 3 million members. Now we face the same economic challenges again and now is the time that you can make a real difference to your community by volunteering at Donegal Town Credit Union!
As a member based organisation, the Donegal Town Credit Union is fortunate to be built upon the efforts of our volunteers, who give freely of their skills and time to benefit their local Credit Union. The Credit Union movement in Ireland and Northern Ireland currently has 9,250 volunteers in total and would like to recruit more.

How do I become a Volunteer?
The Credit Union Committees offer an excellent starting point for new volunteers. These committees provide experience, learning and an active role within the credit union. Once a volunteer has served the credit union at committee level for a period of time, and training needs have been identified and addressed, you may be elected to move into a Director or Board Oversight position.
