Bank Local: Work together. Do the right thing. Have fun.

When you think about it, the economic benefits of buying local go hand in hand with Educational Community Credit Union and the overall “people helping people” credit union philosophy we apply to both personal and commercial banking. After all, ECCU is local, and it’s the cooperative effort that has allowed us to grow from seven initial members in 1935 to the 37,000+ members and businesses served today.

ECCU detail frontECCU serves your family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, businesses, and makes lending decisions locally. Loans are serviced right here in your community, and you’ll always hear a familiar voice or see a familiar face if you have any questions.

With seven convenient locations, ECCU is a full-service financial institution serving anyone who lives or works in a 21-county area in West Michigan offering value, state-of-the-art banking technology and exclusive discounts to community events. For more information, visit www.eccu1.org.
