Everything we do is designed to make things better for you.
When you join a credit union, you get more than a checking or savings account. You become a part-owner and get to vote for policy-setting leaders.
Here's the bottom line: Fox isn't a bank. We offer similar services, but with one huge difference. Other financial institutions may exist to make profits for their shareholders. Credit unions are not-for-profit, and our mission is to partner with our members, communities, and Fox Family to build stronger financial futures.
Governance: Board of Directors elected by our members
Credit unions are locally owned and their boards of directors are elected by members. Decisions about the organization, direction, programs, and policies are driven by the benefits they provide to members. Credit union boards are made up of people who understand member needs and focus on ways to meet those needs. In contrast, other financial institutions answer to shareholders, so their bottom line is maximizing profits.
Why We Exist: To serve and educate members
The most important responsibility of credit unions is promoting the financial success of their members. Credit unions are not-for-profit. The money they make does not pay dividends to stockholders; it is invested in members.
Member Benefits: Lower loan rates and fees, higher savings rates
Money made by a credit union is invested in member benefits in the form of higher interest rates on savings and lower interest rates on loans. What does this mean for you? It means it’s a win-win!
What We Hold Dear: People over profits
By focusing resources on helping members realize their financial goals and build secure futures, credit unions strengthen their communities. Furthermore, because they are locally owned and managed, they are vested in, and committed to, making significant contributions to the local area.
Fox Communities Credit Union is a full-service, not-for-profit financial institution serving members throughout Eastern Wisconsin, including Appleton, Green Bay, Oshkosh, Manitowoc, and Milwaukee.
