Banking with a higher purpose

January 20th, 2014 marked an exciting day for credit unions across Ontario.

Together, 35 institutions across the province have launched the Ontario Credit Union Awareness campaign in an effort to spread the word on the benefits of belonging to a credit union. Better rates, better advice, and better service are just a few. Built on the principles of cooperative banking, the Credit Unions of Ontario believe in banking with a higher purpose—profits that are returned to members and the communities they live in.

Check out the Credit Unions of Ontario website at www.cooperativebanking.ca and discover the powerful difference.

Helping you Save

Have you heard? We’ve recently decreased our personal account package fees by 25%. This means that starting in February you can get our Real Value Basic package for $6.50/month or our Real Value Unlimited package for $11.50/month.

In addition, if you arrange to have your payroll deposited into your MCU account you can get our Real Value Basic package FREE for 3 months. Now that’s saving!

You go Bro!

Momentum’s own VP of Finance and Administration, Brian Martin, has become an official “Mo Bro” for the month of November. Along with thousands of people around the world, he is participating in Movember 2013 which means he will be growing a grand moustache over the course of the month while raising funds to combat prostate and testicular cancer.

Keep an eye on our blog for an updated photo of his progress in the coming weeks. If you are interested in donating to his cause, please click here to visit his personal donation page

Oakville United Way

On October 8th one of our staff members, Beth Marjanovich (right), attended the United Way’s Workplace Volunteer Networking Event in Oakville.

Funding for United Way Oakville comes primarily from their Workplace campaigns which support positive community initiatives like creating opportunities for children and youth, supporting people from poverty to possibility, and helping build healthy communities.

A big thank you goes to Beth for supporting such a great cause!
