America’s Credit Unions working together…

Each year, the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run in Washington, D.C. brings together credit unions from across the country with a shared vision of fund raising and helping children. The proceeds from this event support Children’s Hospitals that belong to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, a non-profit international organization that helps to treat millions of children across the U.S. and Canada. 

Not only will credit unions work together this year to support the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run, but they will continue to work even harder to reach and support their own communities.  Among the many special services credit unions provide is the outreach they have in their communities, and in today’s economic environment a credit union’s financial services may be your best choice for a financial partner!

Credit unions provide consumers like you choices for financial services such as checking accounts, investments and loans of all kinds including mortgages. Funds are federally insured, but unlike banks, there are no stockholders at credit unions. Earnings are returned to member-owners in the form of lower loan rates, higher savings rates, low or no-fee products and services. As a member-owner of your credit union, you have a voice! You are entitled to vote on credit union business, elect new board members, and can also serve on your credit union's volunteer board.  The credit union philosophy of placing members’ needs first is why more than 104 million Americans do their banking at a credit union. Once you’re a member, you’re always a member! 

Credit unions are for everyone-- no matter where you live, there is a credit union to meet your needs. If you are not yet a member, race to your local credit union to find out how you can “finish strong!”
