Credit Unions Return Profits to Members
Not in the form of direct cash payments, perhaps, but as not-for-profit entities, our credit union is able to do the following, which return the profits to our members who make up our credit union community:
- Charge lower and fewer fees
- Pay higher dividends on savings accounts
- Offer lower rates on loans
In one way or another, the profits are returned to our membership ? which helps all our credit union members enjoy greater rewards from their association.
Credit Unions Work with Our Members Going through Hardships
When disaster strikes, our credit union ramps up action quickly by offering special programs to assist you during these hard times. Our credit union can act much faster than large banks and can provide greater flexibility – often on a case by case basis to offer unique solutions for all members like you.
Things like tornadoes, hurricanes, wildfires, and pandemics can place communities at great hardship. Our credit union is there to help communities pick up the pieces and rebuild in their aftermath – by granting loan modifications and taking other actions to make it happen.

Credit Unions Advocate for Small Businesses
It’s the small businesses that are the backbone of many communities. These are the businesses that sponsor little league teams, give back to the community, and make things happen for the people who call it home. Our credit union understand this, so we work to court small businesses and keep them in business, even during times of hardship.
Credit Unions Give Back to Local Communities
By sponsoring various community initiatives and projects to working with local schools to provide financial education to students, our credit union is dedicated to helping build stronger communities at every turn. It’s another way we “give back.” — one we take seriously. To apply for our annual scholarship, make sure to visit www.eaglecu.org/scholarship.
