Who We Are
We share a passion for our members and community: that’s our common thread
Jeanne D'Arc Credit Union
Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union is a not-for-profit member-owned financial institution based in Lowell, Massachusetts. As a not-for-profit our profits go back into the Credit Union to give our members higher rates on savings, lower rates on loans, and fewer fees. Since 1912, our goal has been to provide our members and their communities with the highest-level of service and convenience for all of their banking needs.
When you join us, you’re not a customer. You’re a member. You’re also an owner with an equal vote at our Annual Meetings held to discuss issues that keep us moving forward. Once you’re a member, your entire family is eligible to join us, regardless of where they live.
Our mission is simple: We’re here to help each member make smart financial choices. We believe that embedding social purpose in all of our activities creates a positive impact for our members, their families and our communities. To achieve our mission, we incorporate the right mix of financial products and services, along with strong financial wellness programs that offer free workshops and seminars so members can put their financial plans into action.
Social responsibility is an integral part of Jeanne D’Arc’s culture. Our employees spend countless hours assisting those in our communities who are less fortunate by gathering donations, serving food at local shelters, repairing homes and participating in walks and events benefiting numerous local organizations and causes. Our employees truly embrace the spirit of caring. We’re dedicated to the communities we serve, donating time and money to worthy organizations that help keep this region a strong and vibrant place to live, work and play. We invite you to learn more about our We Share a Common Thread Foundation, along with our Annual Fundraiser, the Steve Jones Legacy Fund, and our quarterly Give A Click Program and other charitable programs we offer.
With eight convenient, full-service branches spread across the Greater Lowell area and Southern New Hampshire, we help our members go further in their journey to financial stability.
