For Illinois credit unions, support for communities starts from the top

When you join a credit union, you’re a member — one of nearly three million in Illinois. Even so, members are not just a number. They know their credit union is a trustworthy place where the best interests of individuals and their communities come first.

Cornerstone Credit Union in Northwestern Illinois is no exception, where helping their members build strong financial futures, offering community assistance and supporting aspiring college students are top priorities.

A Community Relations Committee empowers staff to fulfill year-round outreach programs. This has been a top level initiative because the credit union’s board of directors, who serve in a volunteer capacity themselves, value the fundamental credit union principle of freely offering assistance to their neighbors in need.

For the past 17 years, Cornerstone has facilitated a scholarship program to the tune of two, $5,000 scholarships for local college students per year. That’s $170,000 of welcome relief given back to local families faced with the continuing rise of college tuition.

When life presents many financial challenges and opportunities, credit unions are the best partner to help members build strong financial futures. Isn’t it nice to know that someone is looking out for your best interests? Credit unions truly are A Smarter Choice.
