Solidarity was started in 1954 by Delco Electronics employees pooling their funds together to help a co-worker purchase a car. They did this by placing a quarter a week in a cigar box until they had enough saved to buy the car. Thus, they started a not-for-profit cooperative called a "credit union". There are no stockholders-the members own the credit union.
Today, Solidarity serves anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Howard and/or Tipton counties and select areas of Miami and/or Cass counties. In addition, businesses may become members. To become a member, you simply open a savings account with a minimum deposit of $5.
As a member-owned financial institution, we exist solely to improve the financial well-being of the members. Besides enjoying the latest and most convenient electronic services, members are provided with a safe, convenient place to save and obtain loans at reasonable rates.
Solidarity is led by an all volunteer Board of Directors that is elected by the membership to serve and uphold the financial values and standards established by their fellow members.
