A credit union is a cooperative, not-for-profit financial institution, owned by its members and organized to promote thrift and provide credit to members. It is managed by a volunteer board of directors, elected by the membership. The board hires a management team to operate the credit union. The result: members are provided with a safe, convenient place to save and borrow at reasonable rates at an institution that exists to benefit them.

The primary purpose of credit unions is to encourage thrift and make loans to members. As non-profit institutions, credit unions can typically charge lower rates for loans and pay higher dividends on shares. Rather than paying profits to stockholders, credit unions return earnings to members in the form of dividends or improved services.

Our members! Each credit union member owns one “share” of the organization. Members age 18 and older are even entitled to vote on important issues, such as the election of member representatives to serve on the Board of Directors.

Unlike banks, credit unions are member-owned, not-for-profit institutions. Member-ownership gives us the incentive to focus completely on providing value to members. Banks are for-profit institutions, typically owned by stockholders.
