like all credit unions, financial builders was founded upon seven co-operative principles

How do the 7 co-operative principles shape my Credit Union experience?

Credit Unions put their values into practice by following the 7 co-operative principles. This sets credit unions apart from all other financial institutions, strengthens the community and benefits you too.

No matter what your financial situation looks like, the door is open, without gender, social, racial, political or religious discrimination.

You help call the shots by electing a board of directors.  One member equals one vote.  This is local democracy in action.

Better rates, lower fees and services that benefit the entire credit union.  The more that members participate, the more there is to go around.

As a financial co-operative, your credit union is controlled by real members like you, instead of outside shareholders.

Access to financial literacy tools and resources.  Credit unions believe that education contributes to personal growth.

Your credit union strengthens the co-operative movement by partnering with organizations that share the same important values.
