Advantages of Credit Unions


Grow is different. We’re not a bank. We’re a credit union, which means we’re a not-for-profit owned by our members. You might ask, “are credit unions safe?” Absolutely. We are insured by the NCUA, keeping your money safe and secure. Instead of being obligated to increase profits for stockholders, we’re dedicated to serving members. That shows in everything we do — like in the rates we can offer, the service we provide when you’re buying a home or the help we give when you’re saving for retirement.

How to Become A Grow Member

Managing your finances shouldn’t be intimidating, which is why we’ve made becoming a Grow member accessible and easy. All it takes is just a $1 initial deposit to open a Basic Savings Account, instantly making you a Grow member.¹

When you open a Basic Savings Account, we invest our profits in you, helping you enjoy today while saving for tomorrow. That means you can still enjoy your favorite cup of coffee or craft beer while saving for life’s next adventure.

Credit Unions vs. Banks

We’ve put together this video to help you understand the difference between a credit union and a bank. Spoiler: the key difference is, we put people over profit. Become a member today by opening a Basic Savings Account, and start enjoying all the benefits our credit union has to offer

About Grow

Ever since we were founded in 1955, Grow has been more about people than profit. Since banks back then didn’t really understand how to work with service members, a group of civilian employees at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa decided base personnel needed their own credit union. These employees cleared out a broom closet, and the MacDill Air Force Base Federal Credit Union was born. The next couple of decades were a boom time for the Sunbelt, and our credit union welcomed all kinds of people, not just military personnel. As we grew with the community, we became Grow. The name reflected the essence of who we are and what we set out to do — help people grow. Personally. Professionally. Financially. And after 60 years, we’re just getting started.

Important Information About Procedures for Opening a New Account

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: when you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
