Here we still do business like neighbors helping neighbors, an old fashioned approach that combines modern technologies and the warm professional service members deserve. No matter the need or unusual circumstance, we still listen.

We use our Core Values as a guide and constant reminder that we can always improve our members’ lives. We don’t charge more so that we can increase a line on a graph and we don’t believe that revenue is most important. Our purpose is simple: to help people in our hometown live better financial lives.

“Helping People Live Better Financial Lives” is the purpose that unites all of us at CVCU. We want to create value – for our members, for our employees, and for the communities in which we operate. CVCU’s employees will always put their experience, pride and enthusiasm into making this happen.
