For more than 100 years, Navigant Credit Union has provided financial services to individuals and families in the Blackstone Valley area of Rhode Island. Incorporated in 1915 as “La Credit Union de Notre Dame de Central Falls,” the financial institution was the state’s first credit union.

Today, with more than $1.9 billion in assets, 80,000 members, and 18 locations throughout Rhode Island, Navigant Credit Union is among the largest credit unions in the state and one of the strongest in the country.continue reading »
