RTN’s Credit Union Service & Community Involvement

What makes credit unions different from other financial institutions?

We have a social mission, and credit union community service is as important as anything else we do in business.

Our structure and purpose as a nonprofit financial cooperative means we exist to help our members manage and improve their financial lives. And, as a credit union, community involvement is a core value of RTN. We support local community projects and initiatives, and work collaboratively with members, sponsor groups and our surrounding communities through financial support and volunteer participation.

This is the very essence of the Credit Union difference and the philosophy of “people helping people.”
