Welcome to First Credit Union
Credit unions and banks offer similiar products and services. How they do business and why they are in business differs greatly.
Credit unions exist to serve the needs of their members. They promote the financial well-being of members through a system that is cooperative, member-owned, volunteer-directed, and not-for-profit. There are seven key principles that help define why credit unions are known as cooperatives.
- Voluntary Membership
- Democratic Member Control
- Members' Economic Participation
- Autonomy and Independence
- Education, Training, and Information
- Cooperation among Cooperatives
- Concern for Community
This service-oriented philosophy is the most significant benefit of credit union membership. Credit unions are organizations of people, not of money. That's the credit union difference.
Established in 1929, First Credit Union is one of the oldest financial institutions in Arizona and was indeed the "first" credit union in our state. Since our humble beginnings, providing friendly and personalized service to our members has been our number one priority.
