About Us

Mission Statement:
While promoting the credit union philosophy, we are committed to providing financial service for the changing needs of our members and helping them obtain personal financial security.

Chartered in 1936, LAFCU is a not-for-profit financial cooperative open for membership to anyone who lives, works, worships, attends school in, or owns a business located anywhere in the state of Michigan. LAFCU serves over 75,000 members and holds over $1 billion in assets. We offer a comprehensive range of financial products and services and financial technology solutions. Members enjoy benefits such as low loan rates, low fees, high yields on savings, discounts, knowledgeable employees and nationwide access to fee-free ATMs.

A recipient of the national Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Community Service Award for credit unions, LAFCU has been serving our community for over 80 years. Every year, we proudly donate nearly $100,000 back to the communities we serve. Whether we’re feeding the hungry, providing financial education to schools, supporting arts and music, or having clothing and toy drives, we’re dedicated to rolling up our sleeves and giving back. LAFCU encourages community involvement and its employees serve many organizations and committees on a volunteer leadership basis by sitting on their boards of directors. 

LAFCU understands that an educated community is a strong community and proudly supports education for all ages. Whether sending a youth group to an art exhibit or training someone on identity theft, LAFCU is there to help. LAFCU has taught many individuals how to buy a home, plan for the future, pay for college, retire early, and how to communicate with aging parents.
