Who we are

We’re more than just a financial institution. We’re your trusted partner on your journey toward financial empowerment.

We’re proud of our rich history, and for over 70 years,  we’ve provided knowledge, access, and care to uplift communities and secure better futures for all.  We strive not only to guide you through your finances but also to help you take control of your financial future.

Our Mission & Vision

At Rize Credit Union, everyone is valued and respected. We recognize the inherent worth of each member of our community and treat everyone fairly, with dignity and respect.

We empower individuals and families to realize their potential and achieve lasting financial security. Through financial empowerment, we ultimately work toward ending poverty. This is a journey that requires dedication and persistence, and it’s what drives us to tirelessly serve our members and community.

It’s time to Rize Beyond Banking.

Our Nonprofit

In 2005 we founded the Center for Financial Empowerment (CFE). With a mission to break the cycle of poverty by bringing financial education to underserved and disadvantaged youth, funds raised for the organization are used to go into local high schools to help prepare teens for real life by teaching them to be smart with money and credit through:

  • Fun, interactive, hands-on simulations known as Mad City Money
  • Financial training in the classroom
  • College scholarships for low-income youth
