“As not-for-profit organizations, credit unions reinvest revenues back
into the community, helping members invest to improve their lives.
International Credit Union Day is an opportunity for members to
celebrate the value and convenience that is the credit union
difference,” adds Bland.
Golden 1 is a member-owned not-for-profit financial cooperative,
offering a wide range of low-to-no fee financial services that offer
higher yields on savings, lower rates on loans, and unmatched member
services. The credit union mission is to serve members, not to make a
profit. Unlike most other financial institutions, credit unions do not
issue stock or pay dividends to outside stockholders. Instead, earnings
are returned to members in the form of lower loan rates, higher interest
on deposits, and lower fees.
