54% of Americans say credit unions are the best place for middle class people to deposit their money.
They know that credit unions like ours keep our economy strong and provide a smart financial choice for consumers.
Unlike big banks who answer to Wall Street and return profits to their investors, credit unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives owned and operated by our members.
What makes us different?
- We return savings to the middle class families we serve through higher interest rates on checking and savings accounts and lower interest on loans.
- We focus on reinvesting in the local communities where we’re rooted.
- We work to help small businesses grow and prosper close to home.
In this presidential campaign, credit union members deserve to hear all the candidates for the White House talk about the economic issues that really matter to middle class families. It’s critical the men and women who want to lead our nation understand the important role credit unions play in protecting America’s middle class.
Over the next few months, Aspire FCU and other credit unions are reaching out to over 1 million members to ask you to make your voice heard by all those who are running for the White House.
As the campaign continues,let’s make sure the presidential candidates are talking about the economic issues middle class credit union members care about most. Some presidential campaigns have taken notice of our efforts.

While a few presidential candidates have noticed our efforts, we want EVERY candidate to discuss credit unions. Please visit this special website to tweet a message or sign a petition to any presidential candidate you choose. Let them know you want to hear their views on middle class economic issues and tell them why credit unions matter.
It’s time to remind those who want to win the White House in 2016 that our nation will only succeed with a strong middle class. And a strong middle class needs strong credit unions.
