The GLENVIEW CREDIT UNION was organized on April 30, 1941 as the Glenview Catholic Credit Union, to serve parishioners of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish. Later it merged with the Menorah Credit Union. The charter was then further expanded to reach out to the rest of the community, which was reflected in the name change to Glenview Credit Union.
Membership is available to those living or working in Glenview & Northfield Township, which includes Golf, Northfield, Northbrook and portions of Niles, Prospect Heights, Wilmette, Glencoe and Deerfield. Family members of an existing member are eligible to join, too. Once you become a member, you are always a member.
The Glenview Credit Union, like all credit unions, is a non-profit financial cooperative. Although its services and products are similar to a bank, there are clear differences, which are advantages to you as a member. Customers are shareholders or members that wholly own the credit union, instead of stockholders who may not even be customers of the bank. Profits earned are returned to the membership in the form of lower loan rates, higher savings rates, and low or no-cost financial services.

To be eligible for membership, you must satisfy one of the following requirements:
* You must live or work in Glenview or Northfield Township (includes Northbrook, Northfield, Techny, Glenview, Golf, and select areas of Skokie, Prospect Heights, Glencoe, Deerfield, Wilmette, Winnetka)

The ultimate responsibility for the direction of the Credit Union rests with our volunteer Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is elected by the membership each year at the Annual Meeting by the membership in attendance or their proxy.
Glenview Credit Union has a strong volunteer board and committees that support the credit union by developing services, products and programs to enhance and benefit the membership. Annual events include Money Smart Week, Christmas in July, Toys For Tots, educational seminars, and more.
