Commitment to the Community

Our Commitment to the Community
and the Credit Union Movement

Credit unions don't just exist to provide financial services-we provide financial services for the purpose of improving lives. While our first responsibility is to our members, part of being a cooperative movement means looking beyond our walls to the larger community. This philosophy leads us to support worthwhile charitable and social causes, and to work with other credit unions.



Hospice Buffalo

Hospice is a compassionate approach to care whose goal is to help people with serious illness live life fully, maintain their dignity and keep control over their lives. In medieval times, hospices were inns of rest which "lodged, cherished and refreshed" the Crusader, the sick and the dying.
