Discover the Credit Union Difference

At Discovery, we do things a little differently. We think about the financial success of our members before we think of anything else. We think of ways to help our members achieve their aspirations - whether it is to buy their first car, remodel their home, save for retirement or own a small business.

We're committed to each and every member at every level. We constantly strengthen and enhance our services to meet the changing needs of the people we serve, and we provide products that genuinely benefit our members.

As a member-owned and operated financial cooperative, the credit union philosophy of not for profit, not for charity, but for service shines through in everything we do.
