Credit Unions are financial cooperatives. That makes them different from other banking service providers because as a cooperative they are owned by their members—those who use the credit union to do their banking. Almost 350,000 Ocean State residents belong to a credit union – that’s 33 percent, or a third of the state’s population.
While credit unions may offer an array of banking services similar to those offered by other providers, it's important to note that their cooperative business model espouses a set of values that helps to dictate the way they do business.
One example is found in the way credit unions give back to the community. Besides supporting many neighborhood charities, the Credit Unions of Rhode Island are major donors to Special Olympics Rhode Island and are gearing up this year to surpass the one-million dollar mark in contributions, as Special Olympics Rhode Island celebrates its 50th Anniversary.
