We've branched out to embrace an entire region

We got our start in 1935 as the Kalamazoo School Employees Credit Union. Our goal: to meet the financial needs of local educators. Since then, our mission has evolved and we now provide services to all types of families and businesses in 21 counties in southwest Michigan. In 2016, we became Arbor Financial Credit Union. The new name was designed to change the perception that you had to be a teacher to join. With the reference to trees, we also wanted to reinforce our strong community roots and commitment to growth.
  • Arbor Financial has seven branches in Kalamazoo, Lawrence, Paw Paw, Plainwell, Portage and Three Rivers
