Rogue Credit Union is YOUR local financial co-op, and was founded to help people with their financial needs. One of the great things about credit unions is that as a not-for-profit organization, we are able to focus on what benefits people rather than what benefits the pockets of stockholders. It is our great honor to give our members and our communities the support they need to do amazing things! Below is a list of events and groups we have sponsored this year and support both financially and through our staff involvement.
