People Helping People
Why do more than 260 million people worldwide choose credit unions? Because credit unions have a people-first philosophy that compels them to constantly improve the communities and lives of their members. As cooperative and democratic financial institutions, a credit union's success depends on the success of its members and communities. Your best interest is in our best interest.
At its most basic level, a credit union is people helping people. This is why we celebrate ICU Day at Community First and empower people to take control of their own financial future.
• Equal Ownership – Each member has equal ownership and one vote regardless of how much money he or she has at the credit union.
• Not For Profit – Credit unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives that provide a safe, convenient place for members to save money and access loans and other financial services at reasonable rates.
• Social Purpose People Helping People – Credit unions exist to help people, not make a profit. Our goal is to serve all of our members well, including those of modest means - every member counts. Our members are fiercely loyal for this reason. They know their credit union will be there for them in bad times, as well as good. The same people-first philosophy causes credit unions and our employees to get involved in community charitable activities and worthwhile causes - just ask us.
So when we wish you a Happy ICU Day at Community First, know that we're thanking you for belonging to a movement that's helping your neighbors grow, thrive and follow their dreams.
