Today, Marine is a full-service credit union, serving over 78,800 members with 21 branches across Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, and Illinois, and assets over $1.1 billion. Marine offers a full range of traditional and non-traditional products and services focused on helping the undeserved achieve their financial goals, and more than half of its loans help members with FICO scores in tiers C, D, and E. Marine’s employees are deeply committed to their mission (“advance the lives of people from a place of financial need to a life of ownership and giving back in its communities”), their core values (courage, collaboration, compassion, and commitment) and the communities they serve. Its MCU Foundation has provided grants of over $1 million to its communities and has helped many families purchase their first homes through its innovative Finding HOME program. Marine is a Low-Income Designated Credit Union and earned its Juntos Avanzamos designation in 2017 for its commitment to Hispanic individuals.
