2022 Scorecard

Wisconsin's Credit Unions® Uplift Communities

WI State Collage

97% of Wisconsin's Credit Unions are chartered under Wisconsin law. Their statutory mission is solely to serve their members.

Specifically, to:

“Encourage thrift among its members, create a source of credit at a fair and reasonable cost, and provide an opportunity for its members to improve their economic and social conditions.” – Wis. Stats. § 186.01(2)

Our annual Scorecard illustrates the positive impact that Wisconsin's credit unions have on Wisconsin families, businesses, local organizations, and the economy as a whole--entirely because of their unique structure as member-owned cooperatives driven by a people-focused mission. It is published on an annual basis to share with legislators, policy makers, and the public.
