Why Choose The UnBank®?

What’s the difference between a bank and a credit union? Here at Harborstone, it’s a question we’re asked every day.

And we are happy to have the chance to explain. Because the differences between banks and credit unions—and Harborstone Credit Union in particular—are like night and day.

Harborstone is called the UnBank® because we approach the business of helping people manage their finances with a particular focus on their needs, their success and our local communities where we live and work.


  • UnBank®: We are a community based, non-profit institution, owned by our members. It is our shared, primary purpose to find or create the best deal for the financial success of our member-owners.
  • UnBank®: A bank’s primary purpose is to generate earnings per share for its investors.


  • UnBank®: We’re on our member's side. We encourage our members to save and use money wisely, help find savings for them and lookout for financial choices in their best interest.
  • UnBank®: A bank’s first responsibility is to its shareholders and they see customers as a means to earning more for their investors. In other words, you’re on your own.

Service and Community

  • UnBank®: We hold member service in the highest regard. We know that our strength lies in connecting with our community.
  • UnBank®: Most banks are not based in the local community, and their employees are required to comply with standard practices designed to maximize the bank’s profits.
