We understand churches.
Banking with purpose for charities, churches, and organizations.
Whether you’re looking for small business banking or a larger commercial loan—Kindred can help. Rev. Brooke Ashfield from Knox Presbyterian Church explains how Kindred's understanding of churches led to a relationship that allows Knox to direct more of its funds to its ministry and mission.
Kindred Credit Union’s values-centred approach is woven into everything we do, including our unique, innovative, and impactful products, services, and programs.

Sponsorships and Grants
Kindred also supports charitable organizations through sponsorships. Requests for amounts of $100 to $2,499 can be submitted year-round. We look to support initiatives and organizations that align with our purpose to inspire peaceful, just, and prosperous communities.
We believe values and faith are central to life, and financial decisions are not values-neutral.
At Kindred Credit Union, we believe your financial decisions can impact the world in amazing ways. We call this Banking with Purpose. It’s about making choices that reflect who you are, connecting with those you care about, being part of something bigger. It’s wanting all aspects of your life to reflect your beliefs–including your finances.
We’ve been banking with purpose for over 50 years.
It all began when a group of Mennonites had a radical vision to see mutual aid put into faithful practice — extending access to financial services across our community. That vision is lived out today through our innovative banking, borrowing, and investing products and services.
Kindred Credit Union is cooperative banking that connects values and faith with finances inspiring peaceful, just, and prosperous communities.
