Downriver Community Federal Credit Union brings simplicity to the financial world. “We make money simple,” says Mark W. Tremper, Vice-President of Marketing & Community Development. “Our mission is to provide simple access to the resources our members need to accomplish great things in every stage of their lives.”

Besides simple access to resources, Downriver Community Federal Credit Union, a full-service member-owned financial institution, offers deposit products including savings, checking, and certificates as well as loan options including auto, mortgage, credit cards, business loans, and commercial mortgages. “Our most popular services include checking account, auto loans, and commercial mortgages,” Tremper says.

In addition, Downriver Community Federal Credit Union launched a monthly “Grow Your Business Workshop” series in February 2008 as a way to “help people grow their business in the face of a challenging economic environment,” according to Tremper. The series features a variety of topics, presented by local, national, and international personal and business growth experts.

Tremper notes that his credit union members “have easy access to our entire staff, from our president/CEO, management team, member services representatives, and tellers. We are committed to doing what is best for our members and not just what the guidelines dictate.”

He adds, “We are a locally-based financial institution serving the Downriver area for 75 years. We provide a variety of ways to build up our community, from financial literacy and bully prevention programs in the schools, to workshops that help people grow their business and involvement in a variety of business and chamber organizations.”

And in the spirit of the holidays, Downriver Community Federal Credit Union invited children to visit for a picture and chat with Santa.
