Credit Union of Georgia Scholarship
In 1960, Credit Union of Georgia, then MaCo Federal Credit Union, and later MACO Educator’s Federal Credit Union, was established by 7 local educators of the Marietta City and Cobb County School Systems who wanted to borrow money from one another in a cooperative. The Credit Union began operations with a whopping $35 in assets and a supply closet for a branch office.
Since that time, Credit Union of Georgia has continued to grow and proudly provides financial solutions with value, convenience and exceptional service to the Community of Northwest Georgia. With a long history of partnering with local school systems and serving educators, Credit Union of Georgia has a passion for education and giving back to their local schools.
