A credit union is a cooperative, not-for-profit financial institution organized to promote thrift and provide credit to members. It is member-owned and controlled through a board of directors elected by the membership. The board serves on a volunteer basis. A management team runs the Credit Union. The board also establishes and revises policy, sets dividend and loan rates, and directs certain operations. The result: members are provided with a safe, convenient place to save and borrow at reasonable rates at an institution, which exists to benefit them, not to make a profit.
The primary purpose of the credit union is to encourage members to save money. Another purpose is to offer loans to members. In fact, credit unions have traditionally made loans to people of ordinary means. Because credit unions are non-profit cooperatives, credit unions can charge lower rates for loans (as well as pay higher dividends on savings). Rather than paying profits to stockholders, credit unions return earnings to members in the form of dividends or improved services.
