How is a credit union different from a bank?

Banks are for-profit companies that exist to generate high levels of profit for their stockholders. Bank stockholders elect a paid board of directors to run the bank and to financially benefit stockholders, not the bank’s depositors. Credit unions are not-for-profit organizations that were founded on the idea of “people helping people”. They are member-owned and exist to serve their members, with a volunteer board of directors.

What is a credit union?

Credit Unions are not-for-profit, member-owned financial cooperatives. Unlike for-profit banks whose purpose is to increase the wealth of their stockholders, often at the expense of their customers, credit unions’ purpose is to give our members the best value and service possible.
