How Credit Unions Build Community
Last year, BECU membership exceeded 1 million people and funded over $5 million in donations to local charities. Thanks to your membership, we've built a solid foundation for all members to stand on, and bolstered the communities we live in. Here are some of our accomplishments from last year, by the numbers.
Over $186 Million Returned to Members
Compared to most big banks, we strive to charge a fewer number of fees or fees with minimal impact to members. That savings is returned back to you in the form of better rates on loan products, better rates on savings products, and fewer fees on banking transactions. In 2017, we were able to return over $186 million back to you - an average of $179 per member.
Gave $240,000 to the BECU Foundation
The BECU Foundation is a private, charitable organization that awards scholarships each year to qualified student members. Each awarded scholarship is worth up to $5,000. We award a minimum of 25 scholarships per year. Interested in applying? Take a look at the criteria.
Getting the chance to serve our members is what we're all about. Thanks for helping us soar to new heights in 2017. We're look forward to helping you reach your financial goals throughout 2018 and beyond.
