Credit unions are relevant today because there is not another type of financial institution designed to help working people. With their member-owned not-for-profit structure, credit unions are designed to do exactly that.
For-profit financial institutions are designed so customers deliver profits to third-party shareholders. Credit unions are designed to help people afford life.
Embracing Helping People Afford Life® as a common sense of purpose can do more for the credit union movement than a marketing campaign ever could. In order for this concept to have impact and relevance, it must be embraced by credit union CEOs and incorporated into differentiation language at their credit unions. Helping People Afford Life® should be used any time the question of how a credit union is different from a bank is raised.

Helping People Afford Life® Stories
Helping People Afford Life® isn’t just a catchy slogan. It’s something credit unions do every day for real people. For the last several years we have asked Georgia credit union staff to share their stories about the ways they help people afford life. Some of these stories have been collected in an annual Helping People Afford Life® booklet, provided to Georgia legislators to demonstrate that credit unions are worthy of consideration by those who govern and regulate the industry. You can read these stories yourself by clicking on the links below.
