Credit Unions vs. Banks

A credit union is a not-for-profit, cooperative, financial institution owned and operated by its members. Credit unions were formed by and serve people who share a common bond, such as employment, education, social interest, location or religion. Offering similar products to a bank, like checking, savings, and loans, credit unions are proud of a fundamental difference -  instead of a business model set up to make a profit for a small group of shareholders, credit unions put the needs of their members first and return profits to the membership.

We Put Your Interests First

We don’t think the way the big banks are doing business is right. We believe that it is our job to empower our members and help them get the financial tools, knowledge and products they need to make the most out of their money. We’re here to offer our members honest advice, products and services that focus on their success, and a reasonable and transparent fee structure that puts their needs before our bottom line. 

In other words, we offer all our financial services the way our members want us to—Not For Profit. For People.
