Credit unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives. It is our mission to serve our member-owners, not to make a profit. Unlike other financial institutions, credit unions do not issue stock or pay dividends to outside stockholders. Instead, the earnings are returned to our member-owners in the form of higher interest on deposits, lower loan rates, and lower fees.
Credit unions exist to help people. Our goal is to serve all of our member-owners well, including those of modest means. Our member-owners are loyal for this reason. They know ASCU will be there for them in bad times, as well as good. This is what causes our employees to get involved in community charitable activities and worthwhile causes – just ask us.
