Educators Credit Union Company Bio: 

Started in March 1937 in Racine as the Racine Teachers Credit Union, Educators was started because there was no place for teachers to save or borrow money. The teachers solved this problem by forming a financial cooperative called a credit union.A credit union is a non- profit, member-owned financial cooperative. It’s completely understandable if you’re thinking, “OK, what does all that mean?”Here are the answers to that question, and the more important one, “what does that all mean for you?”

  • Non-profit — Educators doesn’t have shareholders clamoring for ever-increasing profits. That means we can keep our fees low and our rates competitive.
  • Member-owned — When you join Educators, you’re not a customer. You are a member-owner. Member-owner sounds like a pretty good title, doesn’t it? It’s certainly better than customer.
  • Financial cooperative — People joining together for their mutual economic benefit. That is the most basic meaning of a financial cooperative, and you can see it in action at Educators. Members earn money with competitive rates on savings and save money with low or no fees. The credit union responsibly lends money to members who need it.
  • What that means to you — Members come first.

That’s right, all the fancy ideas above boil down to that one statement. For more than 76 years, we have developed a bond with our members, helping them make good financial decisions and keeping their money safe. Our commitment to our members is the same today as it was when the credit union was established in 1937.
