Thank you.

Things do not inspire us; people do. Educators and those who teach us are among the most influential and inspiring people in our lives. When we say we’re passionate about education, we truly mean that we’re passionate about people – people who are inspired to teach, and those who are inspired to learn. They are the inspiration behind Inspirus credit union.
