They are a family of member-owned, mission-driven credit unions, a nonprofit loan fund, and a policy advocacy organization. They work every day to expand ownership and economic opportunities for all. The mission is large, but they believe that much of it is accomplished by small acts: a member's first bank account. A loan for a small business. Helping families buy their first car or first home or reduce high-cost debt.
Together with 130,000 members around the country, they are increasing ownership, creating jobs, revitalizing neighborhoods and building stronger communities.
Their mission is creating and protecting ownership and economic opportunity for all. They do this by providing responsible financial services, lending to small businesses and nonprofits, developing real estate and promoting fair financial practices. While their work benefits communities of all kinds, their focus is on those who may be underserved by conventional lenders, including people of color, women, rural residents and low-wealth families and communities.
