A credit union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative, owned by its members. Yes, Boulevard Federal Credit Union offers loans, checking and savings accounts, and other financial services that banks offer. But we're quite different from any bank. Because we are member owned and not-for-profit, we exist solely to serve our members and provide a smart alternative to profit-driven banks and other institutions. At Boulevard Federal Credit Union, each dollar of income is passed along to our members in the form of higher dividends on savings, lower interest on loans, or new and improved services.
To promote thrift and cooperation among the membership, and to benefit, educate, and serve our members and the underserved of the community by providing competitive financial products and services in keeping with recognized good business practices.
