Our Partners

Our partnership with public agencies, community based organizations, consumer and community coalitions, trade associations, funders, investors, supporters and fellow credit unions is a wonderful expression of the true spirit of cooperation that characterizes the credit union movement. “Not for profit but for service” is the fundamental principle behind our credit union and explains the critical role that community development credit unions have played in the empowerment and improvement of under served communities.
