Member Stories

Hear it from our members.

Getting feedback from our members is the only way to gauge if we’re doing what we set out to do 83 years ago — provide members with better value and outstanding service.

To celebrate International Credit Union Day last October, we ran a month-long sweepstakes in which we asked our member-owners the difference between a bank and a credit union, and what they enjoy about banking with Schools Financial. We received a record 933 responses! Four members were awarded with $500 each, and we chose an additional five more to each receive $100.

Here’s what they had to say.
