We’re a credit union, not a bank.
What does that mean? Red Canoe is a not-for-profit financial cooperative. Your $5 savings opening deposit buys you one share in the credit union – that makes you an equal owner of this financial institution. We’ve been a cooperative since 1937, the money we earn goes back to our members (people like you), not into the pockets of stockholders like a bank. The traditions of credit unions are near and dear to our hearts; not for profit, but for people.
We’re local and we love talking to people.
You can come in or call anytime. We love it!
We’ll save you money.
As a cooperative, we’ll look for ways to save you money, any way we can. Red Canoe representatives are rewarded for finding you the best deal – not on making record profits.
We give back.
Credit unions have a commitment to give back to the communities they serve, and Red Canoe is no exception. We’re dedicated to making a difference in the lives of our neighbors. Visit our community page to learn more.
We’ll pay you!
That’s right – we’ll pay you cash back when you use your Simply Smart debit card. It’s easy.
Full service home lender
We know you don’t want a mortgage, you want a home. Our loan officers understand and they’ll do what they can to make the process painless – all while finding the best loan for you.
We’re always open.
Okay, not always, but we offer a variety of Online Services that are available 24 hours/day to make things simple and convenient. Plus, you have access to an entire network of ATM’s you can use with no fees.
