We've Been Voted Best Credit Union in Lynchburg!

Your Community Credit Union was voted “Best Credit Union” by the readers of the News & Advance for the second year in a row! Thank you for your votes!

Why are we the best? Because we treat our members to the service they deserve! Each member has unique needs. We work to help you on the journey of becoming financially successful in every stage of life. From Youth Clubs to Retirement Accounts, we are here for you…for Life.

This is what one member, Carmen Ward, had to say about her recent experience: “Carletha was amazing! She made the process of refinancing my home very easy and took time with me when I needed her. She was very quick to respond to my emails when I had lots of questions. She even took care of refinancing my car as well – saving me lots of money! I could not have been happier with the service received by my credit union. I highly recommend CVFCU!”

We want everyone to experience the credit union difference – just like Carmen – so we will pay your one-time membership fee if you join by December 31, 2017! Open a savings account with just a $5 deposit and become a member…for Life!

Here is an excerpt from an article published by the News & Advance:

How was your company started?
CVFCU was established in 1976 by employees of Babcock & Wilcox. From humble beginnings outside B&W to now, one thing has remained the same – our dedication to knowing our members and our desire to help them as individuals…and friends.

What is the difference between a credit union and other financial institutions?
We offer a full range of financial products and services. Unlike the others, we are not-for-profit…putting those savings back into your pocket! As a member, you’re not just a customer, you own a share of the credit union.

Tell us about your products and services:
We offer the savings, checking, investment and loan options you need to help make your family comfortable and your small business succeed. We provide competitive and convenient lending products including vehicle loans, mortgages, home equity loans and lines of credit, student loans and personal loans.

So how are you involved in the community?
The communities we serve are important to us because they are our community! Many of our 69 employees were born and raised here. We live, work, worship and go to school here just like our members! From big projects like our annual golf tournament for CMN to smaller events like our recent Alex’s Lemonade Stand in memory of Wesley Shafer, we encourage and support the needs of our neighbors. We also work hard to promote financial literacy for all ages – particularly in the high schools we serve with student branches.

Student Branches? That’s pretty unique….
We think so! We opened our first student run branch at Brookville High School in 2008. Since then, we have opened branches at EC Glass, Jefferson Forest and Lynchburg College!

What else sets you apart?
As a credit union, we typically offer lower loan rates and fewer fees but we think it is the little things that set us apart. For example, our Call Center is staffed by our own folks…people who can answer questions and solve problems for our members with a simple phone call. And you won’t spend half of your day on hold! We think that’s pretty cool….

So, can I join?
Probably! If you live, work, worship or go to school in Lynchburg or the surrounding counties, you are eligible!
