Today’s customers are looking for more than just an institution to help them manage their money. They want to find a place that not only takes care of its members, providing good rates and competitive services, but also contributes to the well-being of their communities, rather than that of their stockholders.

Here’s a radical idea: What if you could join an organization that pools people’s money, uses it to make loans and extend credit affordably, offers a range of banking services and never takes a profit? If you like this idea, you might like Aspire credit union.

4 things to know about taking up Aspire membership:

Improving Financial Literacy
Many people aren’t well-versed in the finer points of money management, such as fees and interest rates. When you’re Aspire credit union member, it’s almost second nature to become financially literate. For example, did you know that certain credit unions require a savings account to be set up before a checking account can be opened? Or that a savings account with a credit union can earn you more interest than a checking account at a bank?

Digital Technology
We are enhancing our digital platforms and enhancing digital tools such as mobile banking applications, cardless payments, card control and notifications, online loan portals and payment apps such as Zelle.

Strengthening Financial Well Being
At Aspire, we really want you to succeed. We want to help you save money and give you the freedom to do whatever you want. We want to make sure you get the best interest rate on your car loan, mortgage, or credit card. We make sure to give back to our members by giving them high interest savings and low interest accounts. That’s what makes us different.

You’re A Member Of A Socially Conscious Community
Perhaps the most important perk of taking Aspire membership is that instead of simply finding a place to keep and manage your money, you become part of something for the greater good of your community. As a democratically run organization, inclusion of our members is the heart of what makes us unique. We operate for the benefit of our members and only our members. From offering scholarships to our students and sponsorship to local charitable organizations, to financial education to help all our members achieve financial independence and stability, at Aspire we strive to be a vital and beneficial part of our community.
