Since 1936, Nusenda Credit Union has operated under a fundamental principle: do well, so that we can do good. With 200,000+ members and 20 branches, we are the largest not-for-profit financial cooperative in NM. Our sound business practices and solid fiscal performance let us be a trusted financial resource for our members.
We provide no-cost financial literacy education at in-person workshops, on-demand podcasts, real-time webinars, a website resource library, and more. We strive to positively impact the communities we serve – most notably through our Community Rewards and employee volunteer efforts.
We're named Best Credit Union by Daily Lobo, Weekly Alibi, ABQ Journal, and RR Observer readerships; won the 2018 CUNA Louise Herring Philanthropy-in-Action Member Service Award, and an honorable mention for the Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Community Service Award. The Nusenda Foundation also received the credit union movement's highest honor, the CUNF's Herb Wegner Memorial Award.
