Thank You For Your Ongoing Support!

We’re thankful to have supportive members like you who join us in supporting our community every year.  Throughout the month of April, together we collected school supplies for local schools. We were excited to see the joy it brought to:

  • Harrison Park Elementary (Grand Rapids Public Schools)
  • G.T. Norman Elementary (Reed City Area Public Schools)
  • Forest View Elementary (Cadillac Area Public Schools)
  • Big Rapids Public Schools
  • Jefferson Elementary (Manistee Public Schools).

From January until June, we collected monetary donations from members in our offices and from our staff who wore jeans on Fridays. Monetary donations will be sent to local public school districts to use
where needed most.

We are currently collecting monetary donations for local organizations in our communities to be able to provide winter coats and accessories to children in need. While you’re spring cleaning, be sure to save any new or gently used winter coats and accessories for our collection this fall.

Member Notice: Denial of Services

As a financial cooperative, it is the responsibility of all the members to abide by the terms of membership and any other agreements they enter into with the Credit Union. When a member causes a loss to the Credit Union, that loss must be shared by the entire membership. Losses have a negative impact on the overall fitness of the Credit Union and impact its ability to provide products and services to the members that do abide by their obligations. It is also imperative for the safety and wellbeing of Credit Union employees, volunteers and members, that they are able to work and perform transactions in a businesslike environment, free from inappropriate conduct. Members who harass or intimidate employees, volunteers, or other members, or otherwise interfere with the business of the Credit Union will not be tolerated. Therefore, it shall be the policy of West Michigan Credit Union to deny services or terminate the membership of any member who has caused the Credit Union a loss, committed a fraud, or has engaged in any misdeed upon the premises. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
