Community Matters To You, And To Your Credit Union

 

Everyday, your organization is committed to making an impact. As a credit union, we share the same values that put people and community before profits. Our team’s commitment to you is to make your organization’s banking experience easy, and we offer specialized accounts to non-profit organizations, societies, charities, cooperatives, and social enterprises to help make that happen.

 

From managing your day-to-day cash flow, to maximizing earnings on surplus funds, we offer accounts that help you ensure your money’s working smarter for you.

 

All Deposits and Earned Interest, regardless of amount, are 100% GUARANTEED by the Credit Union Deposit Guarantee Corporation.*

 

Pair your account with banking and cash management tools designed to streamline payments, transactions and reporting.


Ask us about options for interest bearing savings accounts or strategies to keep your money working harder through short and long term business investment strategies.

 

?Did You Know

When you bank local, more money stays in your community. It helps spur the circulation of funds, meaning money passes through more hands—and more people see the benefit. It’s a multiplier effect. Beyond that, we take an active role in supporting our communities through partnerships with local organizations and by lending our time, resources and talent to promoting sustainable local economic development.


Community matters to you, and to us.
