Q: “Are you a credit union for Amarillo teachers?”
A: From teachers of public, private or parochial schools, colleges, universities and even homeschool teachers, Education Credit Union is a credit union for Amarillo teachers. Education Credit Union was founded in 1935 by ten teachers who pooled together $50 to help fellow teachers who were struggling to survive during The Great Depression.
It’s this “people helping people” philosophy that helps to distinguish these differences between credit unions and banks. We look to serve any of our teaching personnel who desire to be members and their families as well.
We offer membership to all types of teachers including our Amarillo Teachers. As members, you are part owners so we look to serve you as such.Teachers can even apply for our Pocket Change Grant, and can be awarded up to $500 to use in their classroom. We are a business for the community and we give back to the community, which includes our teachers.
