What is a Credit Union?

Credit Unions are all about community. They are not-for-profit financial institutions that exist to serve their members. ​

​Credit unions offer higher savings rates and lower fees, which is important to young people just starting their savings accounts. We provide personal service, helping members plan for the future. ​
The credit union philosophy is “people helping people.”  ​

WFCU is owned and controlled by the people who use our services. We are a great choice for your personal financial needs, and most of all we are passionate about helping our members achieve their financial goals.
