Who We Are

Nspire, Inc. is a 501(c)3 public charity serving as the sister organization and philanthropic arm of Park Community Credit Union. We make transformational investments in communities that struggle with financial instability. Nspire believes that equitable access to financial education, resources, and advocacy will measurably improve growth within our valued communities.

The Nspire initiative was launched in 2019 to drive Park Community Credit Union’s commitment to eliminating economic inequity in our communities. We are passionate about providing financial empowerment to low income, disadvantaged neighborhoods and the lasting effects that it can have on social, physical, and economic well-being. We believe all people should hold the power to achieve financial stability for themselves and their families.

Giving back to the community is a priority for Park Community Credit Union, and our communities inspire our investments. We are Nspire.

Our Why

Social determinants of health are the societal and economic factors that affect how we live, work, and play. Financial well-being is a social determinant of health that interrelates with almost all of a person’s most basic needs, including transportation, food access, housing, and education.

Still, there are communities across the Commonwealth that struggle with poverty and financial stability. Nspire seeks to reverse the effects of inequity, historic disinvestment, and lack of access that have caused these chronic conditions. We commit to investing our resources towards the financial empowerment, generational wealth, and measurable growth of our neighborhoods. We believe that, through Nspire, we can support our communities live their best and healthiest lives.

Nspire will invest in community organizations, collaborative partnerships, and strategic programs that advance our focus areas. Our investment instruments include grants, loan funds, CDFI funding, scholarships, advocacy, research, and more. All programs and investments will be guided by our community-based Board of Directors and the Nspire team.
