Glenview Credit Union
The Glenview Credit Union was organized April 30th, 1941 as the Glenview Catholic Credit Union to serve parishioners of Our Lady Of Perpetual Help Parish. Later it merged with the Menorah Credit Union and the members of B’nai B’rith. The charter was then further expanded to reach out to the rest of the community, which was reflected in the name change to Glenview Credit Union.
Membership is available to those living or working in Glenview and Northfield Township, which includes Golf, Northfield, Northbrook and portions of Glencoe, Prospect Heights, Wilmette and Deerfield. Family members of an existing member are eligible to join, too. Once you become a member, you are always a member.
The Glenview Credit Union, like all credit unions, is a non-profit financial cooperative. Although it’s services and products are similar to a bank, there are clear differences, which are advantages to you as a member. Customers are members that wholly own the credit union, instead of stockholders who may not even be customers of the bank. Profits earned are returned to the membership in the form of lower loan rates, higher savings rates, and low or no-cost financial services.
The ultimate responsibility for the direction of the Credit Union rests with our Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is elected by the membership each year at the Annual Meeting from member volunteers.
