About the Toledo Urban Federal Credit Union

Toledo’s first community development credit union, The Toledo Urban Federal Credit Union opened its doors to serve the central city community on July 21, 1996. We envisioned the need for our community, like all others, to gain control of the economic dollars circulating within our community. Any thriving community turns their resource over at least five to ten times before it leaves the community.

The Toledo Urban Federal Credit Union has exceeded our wildest expectations. It was named one of the fastest growing financial institutions of its kind in the country. Our membership is rapidly increasing with assets of over 10 million and growing…Economic Strength.

Our Mission

The purpose of the Toledo Urban Federal Credit Union is to achieve economic empowerment through education for its members, to be active partners in the community.
