Our Heritage. Our Present. Our Future.
Members Credit Union was started in 1935 by nine Greenwich, CT school teachers who were not able to get small loans at the local banks. They came together to form a cooperative, pooled their money and lent it to each other. They were proud to help each other meet their needs. Through the years we expanded our services to include other school staff and some of the private schools and companies in town. As that expansion took place, MCU learned that there were still many people within our community who were not being well-served at banks and needed our services as much as those original teachers did.
In 2002 we made the decision to become a community credit union and expand our outreach inclusive of all who live in Fairfield County, whether young or old, financially savvy or challenged, with good or challenged credit, American or immigrant. We are certified financial counselors and help our members find their way to financial success.
Now, 15 years later, being an inclusive credit union, we received the Juntos Avanzamos (Together We Advance) designation in 2017 for our outreach to the Hispanic community. In 2018 were awarded with two national awards, Credit Union Hero and Trailblazer Award for Service to the Underserved. We continue to grow our services to those in the community and see a bright future ahead for Members Credit Union and the members we serve.
We are the community’s cooperative partner helping people achieve financial security. We exist to serve you, and our daily goal is “making lives better”. Come and join us!
