Learn the history of Advia Credit Union
Credit Unions are member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperatives, designed to offer lower cost financial products and services. Credit Union membership is growing, and our industry has flourished since the philosophy of “people helping people” was founded with the first credit union in 1908. The services we offer are similar to those provided by banks, but our operating structure is very different. Our members are our owners; earnings are returned to them in the way of lower fees, better rates on deposits and loans and free access to convenient services.
Introducing Advia Credit Union ! On January 1, 2014, we became Advia Credit Union. This is the result of a powerful partnership between two very healthy and thriving credit unions – formerly First Community Federal Credit Union and E & A Credit Union. We are excited to offer our members new advantages, operating regionally throughout Michigan, Illinois and Wisconsin.
With headquarters in Parchment, Michigan, we hold a total of twenty-four (24) full-service branch locations, as well as a growing number of our own ATMs. Members have access to surcharge-free ATM transactions via the CO-OP Network throughout the US and nearly 5,000 Service Center locations for basic transactions such as deposits and withdrawals. Our field of membership is available to those who live, work, or worship in the lower peninsula of Michigan, the counties of Green, Rock and Walworth, Wisconsin, as well as Winnebago County, Illinois. Our credit union is chartered by the state of Michigan and deposits are federally insured up to $250,000 per depositor by the National Credit Union Administration.
We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee made up of representatives from our field of membership. These individuals help guide and oversee our business operations to ensure that we fulfill our mission of providing lower cost and innovative financial services, and contribute to the sustainability of the communities where we live and work!
The recent partnership of our credit unions to become Advia Credit Union positions us within the top 3% of credit unions nationally in terms of financial soundness and asset size. Now serving over 100,000 members with assets over $1 Billion, we are poised to bring even better advantages to our communities and members. We are led by our President & CEO, Cheryl A. DeBoer, and employ a team of nearly 400 dedicated staff. We are committed to providing amazing service to our members no matter where they bank: in-branch, over the phone, or online 24 hours a day!
Experience the advantage via innovative financial solutions.

Cornerstone Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative. When you join a credit union, you own a piece of it and have a say in how it’s run. Credit unions exist to serve their members, not to make a profit. That means their number one concern is not money, but members. That translates into great rates, low fees and exceptional service.
Today, we serve more than 13,600 members and are open for membership to anyone who lives or works in the following northwest Illinois and southern Wisconsin counties. Illinois: Boone, Bureau, Carroll, JoDaviess, Ogle, Lee, Stephenson, Whiteside, and Winnebago Counties. Wisconsin: Green and Rock Counties. Family members of current CCU members also can join. We are the only local credit union in South Beloit and look forward to serving you.

About the Bank
On October 28, 2002, the dream of a few local business people to establish a local community bank in Roscoe, Illinois, became a reality when Gateway Community Bank was chartered and opened to serve the community. Opened in a temporary office location in the Main Street Square (MSS), the bank grew quickly and moved to its permanent location in the MSS on March 3, 2003.
Gateway Community Bank expanded its reach across the market in the coming years and grew to serve the residents and businesses in Rockton, South Beloit, Loves Park, and Machesney Park, Illinois, and Beloit, Janesville and Clinton,
Wisconsin. In March of 2009, the Bank opened its second office location in Beloit, Wisconsin.
The bank also opened a new Loan Production Office (LPO) in Clinton, WI in January of 2016. Staff are available by appointment, but the LPO features a full-service, 24-hour ATM for cash and check deposits and cash withdrawals.
Known for its excellent customer service and ability to move quickly to assist customers when larger corporate banks were unable to, Gateway Community Bank is ready to serve the banking needs of residents and businesses across the entire Stateline area.
