National Baptist Convention Credit Union Campaign

The National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc., is partnering with Self-Help Credit Union on a campaign to create a National Baptist Convention-founded credit union.

Currently, a convention-founded credit union does not exist.

NBC's partnership with Self-Help CU enables NBC members to open accounts that will count toward the goal of creating $50 million in new deposits. Your deposit will help to support the application that NBC will make to the National Credit Union Administration for approval to start a credit union.
