Midland's Best Credit Union Wins Again

October 23, 2023

MIDLAND - The readers of the Midland Daily News once again elected our credit union as the best in Midland. 


Each year, the publication polls its audience to determine the most favored businesses in the region. Midlanders show support for everything from all-you-can-eat buffets to oil changes, celebrating the professionals who have earned their trust as well as their patronage. This is far from our first victory in the credit union category, having earned the electorate’s support for eight of the past nine years. 


“What sets us apart is not just effort, but achievement,” CEO Michael Goad said. “We strive, and we succeed. Our savings rates tower over the averages across the industry.” 


Goad explained that Midlanders know our credit union as their best choice to maximize earnings. As of October, our certificates of deposit remained unmatched in the Great Lakes Bay Region. According to NerdWallet, our high-yield savings accounts bested the national average by a factor of seven. 


The annual Member Giveback program has also fostered goodwill in the community. Our credit union has shared its earnings with members in good standing at the conclusion of every fiscal year since 1980, awarding $14 million in 2022 alone. 


Community Relations Director LaShanta Green added that our credit union’s commitment to being a multiplier for good in the community also likely played a role. Avid readers of the Midland Daily News encountered such headlines as “Dow Credit Union awards $15k in scholarships,” “Midland County Habitat for Humanity, Dow Credit Union help homeowners in need,” and “Open Door receives donation from Dow Credit Union” in the past few months alone. 


While Dow Credit Union also launched a second location in Saginaw this year, Green reiterated our commitment to providing the same award-worthy products and service to members in both counties. 


“We want express gratitude to all of our members for the vote of confidence,” Green said. “We are only the best credit union in the Great Lakes Bay region thanks to the trust and support of our membership.”
