The member lies at the heart of everything we do at CFCU.
As a local not-for-profit financial institution, we don't just say we care, our very foundation for our existence is to care for our members. As we grow and evolve, the local communities we serve grow and strengthen too! Unlike a bank, we do not export our earnings out to shareholders... we put them back into our members' hands through better rates and yields, more services, and through support for our local non-profits and charities.
Banking with a Credit Union is simply the smartest way to bank.

CFCU Community Credit Union opened its doors in 1953 and has roots deep in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State. Back then, we were known as Cornell Federal Credit Union, and served the employees of Cornell University. In 1997, we adopted a state charter and became Cornell FingerLakes Credit Union. Then in 2003, we converted to a community charter for Tompkins and Cortland counties and officially became CFCU Community Credit Union. This means anyone who lives, works, attends school or maintains a business in these two counties is eligible to become a member.
With ten locations, more than 60,000 members and over $900 million in assets, CFCU is one of the largest credit unions in New York State. Our ongoing success can be traced to a number of factors including sound management practices, adherence to a strict code of ethics, excellent rates and great products, year after year. But what truly sets us apart from other financial institutions is our ability to deliver highly personalized, quality service. CFCU Community Credit Union is truly "More than banking."
The Mission of CFCU Community Credit Union is:
To provide the highest level of personal financial services in a friendly, professional manner; to encourage thrift, savings and the wise use of credit; to increase the knowledge and ability of our members to manage and control their financial well-being; to provide sound financial management in order to maintain earnings for our continued growth and to provide our employees with a challenging and rewarding career.
