WORD OF MOUTH
Boulder Dam Credit Union supports hundreds of local charities, athletic events, school programs and other cultural and community projects. We do this because it is the right thing to do. This Credit Union only exists because of the success and vitality of Boulder City, and we owe it to the community to support every attempt to make the community stronger, as much as possible.
If you are a participant, parent, event coordinator, teacher, or have other ties to events which we sponsor, we would ask for one thing in return. Talk about us. Share our story with your friends, neighbors, and families that you feel could benefit from a financial institution with the greatest service, and the lowest fees, to be found anywhere in this great country.
We are unique. We value tradition. And we care about your trust. It’s a story too good not to share! So please share it and make our bonds even stronger.
SEVEN PRINCIPLES OF CREDIT UNION PHILOSOPHY
During the Great Depression, a Credit Union official coined the phrase that Credit Unions were “…not for profit, not for charity, but for service…”. This phrase has withstood the test of time and Boulder Dam Credit Union attempts to demonstrate this philosophy every day.
The CUNA Cooperative Alliances Committee has developed seven cooperative principles that reflect a Credit Union’s commitment to serving members and their community.
This is our scorecard. This is how we judge whether Boulder Dam Credit Union is meeting its obligations and responsibilities as a Credit Union. Are we good? I believe so. Are we one of the best? Possibly. Can we get better? Always.
