At our core, Carolina Trust Federal Credit Union is about people helping people. Since 1958, we’ve been helping our members achieve their financial goals, small businesses get the financing they need, and our employees expand their career potential. Additionally, we actively support our local schools and charitable organizations. Our commitment to serving the community is what differentiates us within the financial industry.

In 2020, we all faced unprecedented challenges. As we navigate these ever-changing times together, our commitment to our members and employees remains unwavering. We were so grateful to win “Best Bank” on the Grand Strand (WMBF) for the second year in a row. For multiple years running, we have also been able to celebrate being a “Best Credit Union to Work For” in the country, as voted by our employees (CU Journal) as well as a “Best Places to Work” in South Carolina. (SC Biz News in partnership with the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce & Best Companies Group).

This year, we introduced August, our Brand Ambassador (IG @successinthebag). She is youthful and has a fresh take on financial tips and tricks. Additionally, we have a weekly segment on WBTW News 13’s Living Local Carolina entitled Financial Friday, where we discuss financial education topics, visit with our favorite local businesses in the community and showcase our deep roots within our field of membership.

Carolina Trust has lending to fit a wide variety of needs. From our first-time homebuyer’s mortgage to personal loans to commercial lending, our team of professionals is ready to assist you in all aspects of lending.  

At Carolina Trust, we encourage everyone to #shoplocal, #banklocal, #moveyourmoney, and try #creditunionlife® because why would you want your money working for someone other than you?
