Our Vision

The perfect place for imperfect people.

Our story of this vision coming to life.

Sometimes life seems almost perfect. You land the perfect job. You meet the perfect person. You find the perfect house and drive the perfect car.

But every now and then, things that seemed perfect turn out to be not-so-perfect.

Layoffs. Divorce. Home repairs. Car problems. Life happens.

Maple Federal Credit Union is here to celebrate with you when things are going well—but we’re also there for you when life happens. No matter where you are right now, we’re ready to meet you with fair, affordable loan rates and savings programs that can help you achieve your dreams and prepare for life’s unexpected turns.

Why are we so passionate about this? Because life happens to us too. Like you, we understand the need for someone to be there in the good times and the bad.

Maple Federal Credit Union. The perfect place for imperfect people.
