Brewer FCU has always prided itself on it’s community and the value of it’s members. We put on events and fundraisers, and do special campaigns and promotions to benefit the people of Penobscot County; and sometimes, when fate allows it, we receive incredible recognition for our handwork and dedication.
The team here at Brewer FCU is a diversified one, all with different interests, backgrounds, personalities, and skill sets, but one thing brings us all together…our one common goal to be the best. We may not be as big as some CU’s by size, but our hearts, creativity, and determination are what separate us from everyone else, and we are proud to call ourselves ‘Your Financial Port of Call’

ALL OF NEW ENGLAND for their asset size!
It’s once again time to announce the winner of New England’s oldest and most prestigious annual event recognizing creative marketing and branding! We searched New England for the best marketing campaigns from banks, credit unions, mortgage companies and more. We received scores of entries, both for general marketing (covered under our Financial Marketing Awards) and for community involvement (under our Community Champions awards). Thank you for being part of this exploration of creativity and accomplishment.
We’re pleased to point out that these are the region’s oldest and most respected awards for financial marketers. They are held to the highest standards. And unlike other awards events, you will never be asked to advertise or sponsor any part of the event or publicity – no one wins New England’s Financial Marketing Awards because of the size of their wallet. Winners are chosen exclusively on the merit of their work.

We have many more events and marketing strategies which we will use to hopefully continue to grow our CU!
