We make the needs and desires of our members our priority each and every day and welcome the opportunity to show you how we can make life better for you and your family.

Our History

We were originally chartered on Tuesday, February 17, 1953, as St. Michael Livonia Federal Credit Union. Our focus was on serving Catholics in the immediate area and soon evolved into one of Michigan’s leading and well-respected Catholic credit unions in Michigan.

Over the next couple of decades, we grew substantially and made the decision to build our second branch in Plymouth Township, Michigan. Our field of membership remained focused on Catholics and Catholic-based organizations in the Plymouth-Canton-Northville communities.

In January 2020, we became a state-chartered, community credit union and open to serve everyone in the lower-half of the lower peninsula of Michigan with the same guiding principles we were founded on.

Today, CVF Credit Union continues to build on the legacy we set out for in 1953, but now are open to all. We built our reputation on doing things in the best interest of our members and the communities we serve; that has never wavered. Our financial strength and stability, combined with innovative products and services, has helped us grow to become the banking choice for almost 30 different communities and business owners, as well as catholic parishes, schools, and organizations.
