CU Difference

Azura Credit Union takes banking Above and Beyond because we are built to serve a community of people.

We don’t exist to serve paid stakeholders, we’re owned by every day people like you, our members.


We may look like a bank, but we’re definitely much more.


Banks VS Azura. What’s the Difference? Banks are for profit financial institutions and Chartered by a state or federal government.  Azura is a member owned and operated financial co-operative and profits are shared amongst members.  Chart showing the difference between Banks and Azura.  Banks are an organization that is a for-profit corporation and Azura is a not a for-profit organization.  Banks are owned by private investors & stockholders and Azura is owned by all members. Banks board of directors are paid and Azura’s are rock star volunteers.  Banks purpose is for profit and Azura’s purpose is people helping people.  Banks stockholders are who benefits and Azura’s awesome members are who benefits.  Banks service is profit driven and Azura’s service is service driven.  Banks ATMS are everywhere they are and can cost more and Azura’s ATMS are everywhere you are with 28K in-network ATMS.  Banks are federally insured by the FDIC and Azura’s federally insured by the NCUA.  Are you ready to go Above and Beyond Banking?
