Here With You.
Supporting our
Communities & Neighbors.

It’s a time of considerable pain and loss in the Twin Cities.

George Floyd’s death, and the following unrest and violence, reflect deeply ingrained, long-standing divisions in our society. Affinity Plus condemns racial injustice and discrimination. We reaffirm our commitment to live our values and to cultivate a credit union that prioritizes inclusion, diversity and openness.

We’re committed to listening to those impacted, learning different perspectives and taking action for positive change. We invite you to help us help our communities heal, rebuild and be a force for good.
