For consumers: Kansas credit unions are a smarter choice.
Credit unions are member-owned financial cooperatives whose sole purpose is to meet the needs of their members. All credit unions live by the philosophy of "people helping people.”
Credit unions are vital to each and every community they serve, and are dedicated to making their communities a great place to live. They support other businesses and organizations, provide a financial service to their neighbors and give back to other not-for-profits through fundraisers, charitable giving and community events.
Kansas credit unions have always recognized the importance of financial literacy—both for their members and in their communities. Their main priority is to serve their members and help them achieve financial success.
