We're a credit union, not a bank.

What does that mean? Red Canoe is a not-for-profit financial cooperative. Your $5 opening deposit buys you one share in the credit union - that makes you an equal owner of this financial institution. 

We've been a cooperative since 1937, and the money we earn goes back to our members (people like you), not into the pockets of stockholders like a bank. The traditions of credit unions are near and dear to our hearts; not for profit, but for people.

Earn Debit Rewards, for free.

It's easy and free to earn debit rewards on all debit card purchases. Simply enroll in free eStatements and keep an average monthly balance of $250 or more and you'll automatically earn debit rewards. Don't worry, if you fall below the balance, there is still no monthly fee for the account and you'll have the opportunity to earn rewards the following month. Each November, your annual rewards are automatically deposited into your savings account. You don't have to claim them or call us. They're automatic and they're easy.
