The Credit Union Difference

Credit Unions

  • Member-owned, not for profit financial cooperatives
  • Profits shared with members
  • Decisions made with members in mind
  • Better rates and lower fees


  • Owned by shareholders, for profit financial corporations
  • Profits benefit the shareholders
  • Decisions made with shareholders in mind
  • Rates and fees not as attractive

Credit Unions exist because people like to feel a part of something that adds value to themselves and others. Our heritage is people helping people.
