REAL Solutions® Scorecard

The REAL Solutions® 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. 

Wisconsin's Credit Unions: People Helping People Since 1923





We know that when you see the kinds of financial services we offer, you might think
we're just like everyone else, but there truly is a Credit Union Difference.


Thanks to our member owned, not-for-profit structure, Wisconsin's 125 credit unions can do
some pretty remarkable things for our 3.3 million members and the communities we serve. 


Because credit unions are member owned cooperatives, we're uniquely empowered
to put the needs of our members and communities before profit.

Credit unions make a difference in the lives of real people all over Wisconsin!
