A Credit Union is a “Not for Profit” financial organization where you as a member are part owner. Credit Unions are community oriented and are for “people” not “profit” and serve their members only. They do not have to pay stockholders that take away from profits. All of a Credit Union’s profits go back to you by offering you the same products banks do at a less expensive cost with better personal service. WHAT CAN GLCU DO FOR YOU?
