Community

"Community" is our middle name. It's what we are. It impacts how we operate and plan for the future. We give back to our members in the way of higher dividends, lower fees, free services, and free- and reduced-rate member activities. (Yay!)

We also give to the greater community by partnering with and contributing to local businesses and charities. In the cooperative Dupaco spirit, we also ask that you consider giving back. It's good for your character. And it's often tax-deductible, too.

 

Now, check out these upcoming Dupaco-sponsored events and activities and go out there and have some fun.
