CREDIT UNIONS DECODED
Credit Unions are not-for-profit, member-owned financial service cooperatives, founded on the basic principal of, People Helping People. We offer all the same products and services you’ll find at a bank, but without the stockholders.
Why Not Having Stockholders Is Good for Credit Union Members
The more big banks can charge their customers in fees and interest, the fatter their stockholders’ wallets grow, and the leaner their customer's wallets get. But credit unions are member-owned cooperatives. We're not obligated to make a profit for stockholders. Instead, our profits are returned to our members, as higher savings rates, lower interest rates on loans, and fewer fees.
Become an Owner and Let Your Money Work for You!
It’s simple; credit unions have a vested interest in the financial success of every member because our members’ success ensures the success of the credit union.
Tigers Community Credit Union was founded in 1984 as “Missouri Student Federal Credit Union” by a group of students as the first financial institution on the University of Missouri–Columbia campus. Since then, Tigers Community has remained a not-for-profit financial organization dedicated to serving the needs of students, alumni, faculty and staff at MU, Stephens College, Columbia College and anyone who lives or works in Boone County, St. Charles County and St. Louis County.
We embarked on a partnership with West Community Credit Union in 2006 where our headquarters is located in O’Fallon, MO. With this addition, we have six St. Louis-area branches in O'Fallon, Brentwood, Kirkwood, Lake St. Louis, Florissant and downtown St. Louis.
In 2022 we opened our third Columbia, MO location.
Our sound policies and investment practices have helped keep Tigers Community strong even in times of crisis for other financial institutions. Our service offering and technological capabilities continue to grow, thereby providing members with more convenient ways to access and manage their accounts.
How We're Governed
We are a financial cooperative with a volunteer Board of Directors. The officers and Directors who serve on the Board volunteer their time and expertise to establish policies and strategies that will help our financial cooperative grow.
An election is held annually for open positions in which members over 18 years of age can vote. Any member can volunteer to run for the Board of Directors, the Supervisory Committee, or a board committee.
What We Are
We’re a not-for-profit financial cooperative. And, because we are member-owned, we can generally offer better loan and savings rates and fewer fees. All members have an equal share in the organization.
