Keesler Federal Member Giveback Program
Our members and the communities we serve are at the heart of everything we do. Whether through our Member Giveback program, sponsorships and donations, or college scholarships, we understand that strengthening our communities makes all of us stronger.
Unlike other financial institutions’ freebies, Keesler Federal’s innovative monthly Member Giveback program gives you a chance to win amazing prizes you can REALLY use. Prizes like $3,000 in cash, your direct deposit matched up to $2,000, a mortgage payment, car payment or signature loan payment reimbursed up to $1,000, and many others. You’re automatically entered in the drawing just for using Keesler Federal products and services.1
In 2022, the number of monthly giveback winners was increased from 36 to 75 in celebration of our 75th anniversary. Great news – this increase is now permanent, giving you more chances than ever to win!

About Lisa J. Stubbs
In 1992, the scholarship program was dedicated to Lisa J. Stubbs, a Keesler Federal employee of over 8 years. While employed full time at the credit union, Lisa attended night classes, working toward her degree. Lisa died at the age of 25 after a lifelong struggle with cystic fibrosis.
Since Lisa’s courage and determination were an inspiration to all who knew her, the scholarship program was renamed in her honor in hopes that her spirit of achievement would inspire others to reach new heights.
