Madison Credit Union | Proud to still be serving the Madison community after 88 years.

We are a small credit union with a big heart.

We understand that building a financially strong community starts with building a financially strong person. Staying true to our motto, Big Enough to Serve… Small Enough to Care, we hope to offer the tools and inspiration that our members need to reach their financial goals. Our approach treats each member as a person, listening to what they need, and providing them with the solution that works best for them.


Here for our members

Wisconsin State Capitol

Since 1936, Madison Credit Union has served the financial needs of our community.

Born from the aftermath of the Great Depression, Madison Credit Union was started with 9 members signing a credit union charter. They pooled their own money and started giving out loans to those deemed ‘unqualified’ by banks.

Terms of loans were set according to a member’s ability to repay; in some cases that was just $1 at a time. Despite the hard times of the depression, members always tried to repay their loans. Delinquency was almost unheard of because we believed in our members and our members believed in us.

Today we still carry that mutual trust and respect with our members. We make meaningful connections with our members, learning each member’s story so that we can best serve their financial needs.

Although the products, services, and location have evolved through the years our mission has not changed: Big enough to serve, small enough to care.

Here for our community

Our deep roots in the local community continue to grow by helping local families through charitable actions. 

We are continuous supporters of the Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center, the Goodman Community Center, Second Harvest Food Bank, and the River Food Pantry. We are yearly volunteers at many of the city events including Ride the Drive and city park’s Earth Day Challenge.

We are also loyal supporters of Madison Parks Foundation, The Salvation Army, The Luke House, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Children’s Miracle Network, and Shop with a Cop.
