"We chose NCB because NCB shares our values, that businesses and banks, and banks as businesses, should be in this world to do more than just make a profit."
Co-Executive Director, Equal Exchange
Who We Are
Chartered by Congress in 1978 and privatized in 1981 as a cooperatively owned financial institution, NCB was created to address the financial needs of an underserved market: cooperatively owned organizations that operate for the benefit of their members, not outside investors.
What We Do
We provide banking products and services to cooperatives, their members and socially responsible organizations nationwide. But we are more than that. We help people gain access to goods or services only available through cooperation.
How We Do It
We work with customers and strategic partners on novel solutions to practical challenges. With over 35 years of expertise in niche sectors we understand the challenges our customers face and work cooperatively with them to find solutions.
Why We Do It
We believe in our cooperative mission and helping our customers succeed. Cooperatives are successful because they believe in people working together to help each other, which allows them to find value not possible by themselves. We help communities create wealth, provide jobs and create housing.
