Excellence In Service Since 1936.

From the beginning, Adventure Credit Union has been a not-for-profit organization owned and governed by members, focused on helping them improve their financial well-being. We strongly believe in and adhere to the credit union philosophy of people helping people, and we constantly strive to provide the best value in the marketplace.

Beginning in 1936, to each new member we welcome today, Adventure remains committed to helping members make the most of their money.  

Headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Adventure has grown into the 45th largest credit union in the state and the 751st largest in the United States, serving over 30,000 members with 140 employees. We continue to look for new and progressive ways to meet the financial needs of our members through time-saving, easy access and cost-effective financial services.

While there are many changes all around us, Adventure remains dedicated to improving your banking experience, keeping it local, personal and tailored while bringing you good value.  As always, we welcome your feedback.
