Pulaski Office is Open!

Important Year-End Tax Time Information

On Monday, January 6, 2020, we opened our newest branch at 1061 Corporate Way, Pulaski. It’s a full-service branch offering mortgage, consumer and business loans, easy access drive-up lanes and an ATM.

If you choose to have your tax refund electronically deposited, you must use your full 12 digit account number(s) along with the Fox Communities Credit Union routing number, 275977256. Your full 12-digit account number(s) can be found on your December statements, within your digital banking account and on the bottom of your checks ordered through Fox.

Sara Wesolowski, Branch Manager for the Pulaski office, comments, “The credit union and staff are very excited to be a part of the Pulaski community. Over the years, our members have been asking for a location in Pulaski. Our location has a member-friendly design featuring teller islands, instead of the traditional teller counter, allowing for a more interactive conversation between the teller and member. We also invite members and potential new members to enjoy a hot beverage, from our coffee bar, as we welcome them to this new location!”

How Much Money Should Be In Your Emergency Fund?

Most financial experts suggest that you have at least six month’s worth of expenses in your emergency fund. First track all of your expenses for a month or two to figure out how much money you will need to get by. Then use the chart to the right to help you zero in on the ideal size for your emergency fund. Visit vimeo.com/132255661 to watch a short clip by It’s a Money Thing about emergency funds.


$5,000 in Fox Scholarships to be awarded! Applications due February 21st!

Are you planning on going to college or another post-secondary school? Worried about all of the expenses that will soon be coming your way? Five graduating high school seniors, who will be continuing their education, will be chosen to receive one of our five $1,000 scholarships. Scholarships are based on community service and the thoughtful completion of this year’s essay question: “We all have heroes and mentors in various forms. Please tell us the most important person that has influenced you to believe in yourself and pursue your dreams and goals.” Applications can be found online at www.foxcu.org or at any Fox branch.
