Local Businesses Matter

The heart of any local community revolves around the presence and success of local businesses. Instead of the top profit margins going to CEOs and corporations in other parts of the U.S. and across the globe, the money stays locally and gets put back in to the hometown infrastructure.

Educators Credit Union is your local credit union. In 1937, Educators was founded as a not-for-profit financial cooperative that doesn’t have customers, but member-owners. The first establishment was in Racine, Wisconsin, as the Racine Teachers’ Credit Union.

By offering low rates and competitive products to its member-owners, Educators soon had branches in Kenosha and Burlington by the end of the 1970s. Currently, there are 17 full-service Educators branches throughout the state of Wisconsin.

Your local Educators branch is near other local businesses in your community. The employees of Educators shop in your stores, send their kids to the same schools as you and since the goal of Educators is not to profit for board members and CEOs, the money stays in Wisconsin.

Local businesses also provide a platform to showcase the individuality of your community. Storefronts, decorations, products and customer service are all on display at your downtown.
