Earlier this year, MECU Credit Union committed $200,000 to launch two new Arts Every Day initiatives – the Arts Challenge Fund and MECU Music Ed/Remix – to expand students’ access to arts and music education in Baltimore City Public Schools. 

MECU Credit Union serves individuals and local businesses throughout the Baltimore area. Today, MECU Credit Union has more than 110,000 members.
