Helping Members be Wise with Money and Live Generously

As a membership organization of Christians, we have 156,995 members in the South Wisconsin Region who are our owners. Our purpose is to serve our members and society by guiding both to be wise with money and live generously. We believe that all we have is a gift from God and that generosity is an expression of faith. We succeed when our members, their families and their communities thrive.
