Acclaim Federal Credit Union Turns 50!

2022 marks the 50th Anniversary for Acclaim Federal Credit Union. Everyday we work to provide quality financial products to you, presented with outstanding member service and education, so we can be the financial partner you trust. We are so thankful for our members and community for your continued support over the years.  We could have not done it without you! 

To show our gratitude, we have launched a 50 Acts of Kindness Campaign. 

A little kindness goes a long way.  Throughout the year we will be showing random acts of kindness to our members, community, and staff. 

Continue to check back to see what acts we are participating in!
