History & Mission

History

It all began with a few teachers and a dream. Back in 1939, eight Minneapolis teachers decided to take control of their own financial security. They formed the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers Credit Union.

Over the years the credit union has endured name changes, added field of memberships and expanded across the Midwest. Take a look at the timeline below to learn more about our storied history.

Mission

TruStone Financial’s mission is to create a financial institution that people respect, admire and want to associate with because of our attitude about money and our ability to simplify the banking process.

We are going to take a stand on matters of personal finance to promote the virtues of financial literacy and saving. We know the best financial institutions in the world are successful because they are a partner in banking, not just a facilitator.

Mission, Vision and Values
Mission
Our mission is to provide simple and fairly priced financial tools that allow members to save, borrow and transact. We do this by engaging, educating and supporting our members to ensure they have the means to make their lives better.

Specifically providing:
• Convenient access to financial products and services through the internet, ATM, phone and full-service branches.
• Assistance by trained service professionals in matters of personal finance and rapport building.
• Resources that educate members and employees about how the financial system operates and how it can work for them.
• Compelling reasons to encourage people to save more of the money they earn.
Vision
Our vision is to create a financial institution that people respect, admire, and want to associate with because of our attitude about money and our ability to simplify the banking process.

We are going to take a stand on matters of personal finance. We will encourage, promote, and celebrate the virtues of education, saving, and thrift. We aspire to an attitude about personal finance that is encouraging and contagious.

Our brand will be distinct and memorable because we know that the best financial institutions in the world – credit union or bank – are not successful because they confuse people or charge them hidden fees. They are successful simply because they encourage, inform, and facilitate.
