MEMBER TESTIMONIALS

    I have been doing business with the IMKCFCU my entire life and Jessica has had an account for around 20 years. We have always received excellent service whether it be for a loan, a money transfer, or just cashing a paycheck. The entire staff is great! Last year, we started a nonprofit youth mentoring program called HardCore Scripture Outdoors. We teach kids how to hunt, fish, and trap.  We also teach them about conservation and help them become productive members of society.  We had lots of questions about setting up a nonprofit account, so we set up a meeting with Robin Strauss and she was incredible. She walked us through the process start to finish, answered all of our questions, and gave us the information we needed to get started.  We know with sponsorships and donations for the community, the children we serve will be better for our efforts.  Thank you, IMKCFCU!  Keep up the good work!

    "Vehicles today are very expensive, whether new or used. Used vehicles seem to really be holding their values. As such, we needed to finance a 2008 truck.
    After calling around to other financial institutions, no one would extend a loan to us based solely on the age of the vehicle. We wanted you to know what an important role you play in the lives of IMKCFCU members. Not only do you offer wonderful interest rates, but you are filling a gap that others don't offer. 
    Thank you for providing such wonderful services to its members."
