Hey there, you rebel with a cause! If you're the kind of person who's always looking to better themselves, their family, their future and their community, then it's time to pay attention. The financial world is changing, and it's time to take control of your money and your destiny by becoming part of the credit union movement. Why should you care? Let's dive into the "What's in it for me" aspect of this financial revolution.

1. Ownership and Empowerment   

As a member of a credit union, you're not just another customer; you're a Member. All Members have a share in the Credit Union. That means you have a say in how things are run. One share, one vote, everyone has equal say when electing the Volunteer Board of Directors to oversee the credit union’s well-being and make decisions in the interest of all Members. Your voice matters, and you're empowered to elect the people who make decisions that directly benefit you and your community.

2. Community-Centric

Abound Credit Union is all about giving back. We're deeply rooted in your (our) neighborhoods, so when you bank with us, you're investing in your community. Your money stays local, supporting businesses and initiatives that matter to you and your neighbors.

3. Lower Fees, Better Rates

Let's talk money. In general, Abound offers lower fees, better interest rates and favorable terms on loans and credit cards to more people. Translation: more money in your pocket. You work hard for your cash; it's time to keep more of it. And we help make deposit and loan products more accessible to everyone in our communities because, yep, you guessed it, we’re for people over profits.

4. Personalized Support

Ever felt like a faceless customer at a big bank? That's not the case with Abound. We know our Members and understand your unique financial situation. You get personalized service that's all about helping you reach your goals. And we do something that’s almost unheard of nowadays: we listen.

5. Financial Education

Knowledge is power. Abound offers workshops, resources, and resources to boost your financial literacy. We're on a mission to make sure you have the knowledge and tools to conquer the financial world.

6. Ethical Banking

Banking with a conscience. Abound Credit Union is all about ethical banking practices, social responsibility and sustainability. Your financial choices align with your values, making you a part of something bigger.

7. Local Economic Impact

Your money matters beyond your bank account. As a not-for-profit organization, we reinvest profits in the community, helping local businesses grow and creating economic opportunities. You're making a tangible impact. And by offering you lower rates on loans and higher returns on deposits, you’ve got extra money to invest in your community (and yourself) too.

8. Security and Peace of Mind

We’re here to help you secure your future. Whether you're saving for retirement, planning to own a home or just need financial guidance during tough times, we've got your back. So, what's in it for you? It's about control, empowerment, community, and financial freedom. It's about joining a revolution that's shaking up the financial world in your favor. As a rebel who's determined to make life better—for yourself, your family, your future and your community—being part of Abound Credit Union is the next logical step.
