Community Involvement

We know there's more to life than money

When you step back a bit and look at the big picture, you’ll see that credit unions are driven by the philosophy, “people helping people.” Credit unions are places where members pool their savings, lend to one another and own the organization — people helping people. This is how Consumers Credit Union operates. And, we take it even further to support our communities. 

At the heart of Consumers Credit Union is a dedication to making our local communities better places to live. CCU currently works with the organizations listed below to achieve that goal.

  • Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce
  • Arlington Heights Rotary Club
  • Bernie’s Book Bank
  • Bloomingdale Chamber of Commerce
