In 1948, credit unions in America, and later around the world, began celebrating the philosophy and achievements of credit unions every year on the third Thursday in October. International Credit Union Day officially became an annual recognition, and this year's theme of "Building financial health for a brighter tomorrow” reflects how credit unions contribute to a better future by providing financial empowerment to people all over the world through tailored products, services, education and support.
Credit unions are not-for-profit, so their primary purpose isn’t to score record profits. Rather, the primary purpose of credit unions is—and always has been—to be of service to their members.
This "people helping people” philosophy doesn’t just mean better service—it translates into a better overall financial experience for consumers. In alignment with this philosophy, Lafayette Federal’s mission is to be your trusted financial partner that is member-focused, service-driven. As we reflect on this special day during this year of uncertainty, we are especially grateful for your business, and sincerely appreciate you choosing us. Thank you for your continued support.
