Want a chance to win some cash and show off your Advanz pride? Enter our #AdvanzMyLife photo contest! Here’s how:

  • Take a candid photo of how your credit union has supported you on your financial journey - how have we helped you “Advanz your life?” Sorry, professionally taken photos are not permitted!
  • Send the photo via email to mail@advanzcu.org along with your first name, last name, and description/testimonial of how Advanz membership has impacted you. Want to stand out? Include yourself in the photo!
  • A panel of Advanz CU affiliates will choose a first-place winner and runner-up. Didn’t win? You’re not out of the running yet! We’ll have our social media followers vote for their “fan favorite” to be included as a winner. 


The first-place winner will receive $100, the second-place winner will receive $75, and the “fan favorite” gets $50. We can’t wait to see your submission mission - enter by 11:59 p.m. EST on 10/31/22!

  • Home of the Innocents Bake Sale - Did you buy a sweet treat in August at one of our branches? Then you helped us raise $700 for the Home of the Innocents. Thank you to all those who participated!
  • Eastern KY Floods Red Cross Fundraiser - With the generous support of our members, we raised $7,080 to help those impacted by this summer’s flooding in Eastern Kentucky. Thanks to those who donated to our August/September American Red Cross Fundraiser!

Important Fraud Alert: Watch Out for Mail Theft

Mail theft is on the rise, and unfortunately, it's happening right here in our communities. Through armed robbery of postal carriers and theft, criminals are trying to gain access to the master keys of the blue USPS mailboxes – ultimately in search of checks that can be altered, counterfeited, or sold online.


In several cases, member-issued checks have been stolen from USPS mailboxes, as well as members’ mailboxes, altered, and negotiated elsewhere. The checks can also be used to open fraudulent new accounts and loans using the name and address information of stolen identities. You can protect yourself by:

  • Paying your bills online
  • Mailing checks in the post office lobby rather than using blue mailboxes
  • Check your credit union accounts regularly for unfamiliar transactions
  • Report suspicious transactions to us immediately
