About Us

Mission & History


We are a not-for-profit financial cooperative, owned by its members. Our mission is to build lifelong relationships that enhance the financial lives of our members and Catholic communities.



At the turn of the 21st century, the Board of Directors of Catholic United Financial approved the establishment of a member-owned credit union that would operate under the same values and business principles informed by the Catholic faith as its parent company. Since then, Catholic United Financial Credit Union has provided banking products and services to a growing membership throughout Minnesota.



  • 2001 - Catholic Aid Association Credit Union was charted by the State of Minnesota
  • 2010 - Changed its name to Catholic United Financial Credit Union to reflect its parent company.
  • 2012 - Merged with Catholic Credit Union of St. Cloud
  • 2016 - Relocated the St. Cloud office to its current location on St. Germain Street
  • August 2020 - Appointed Maureen Daehn as president

Board of Directors

Credit unions are different from other financial institutions because they are not-for-profit cooperatives whose primary goal is to serve their members. Our directors are elected by the membership and serve a three-year term. They volunteer their time and lend their expertise to ensure the needs of the members are met and their expectations exceeded.
