The CU De Novo Collective’s purpose is to keep fighting for the future of credit unions...

even if we may not be around to see it.


Here’s what the CU De Novo Collective

is doing about it

The CU De Novo Collective hopes to spark a revolution within the credit union movement where new credit unions can be formed more easily to serve new and existing communities in exciting new ways.

We’re working to help established credit unions and the industry as a whole to support and value new credit unions. In our vision of the future, forming new credit unions will become a common, accepted way of meeting new needs and pursuing new opportunities with a wide array of existing and new communities.
