Self Help Credit Union

Go Local Certificate of Deposit

In March of 2013 we partnered with Self-Help Credit Union to create the Go Local CD. Funds raised are lent to locally owned and independent businesses in Western North Carolina and for home loans that will be held locally.

Since inception the CD has brought in over $2 million and has loaned $2.29 million. Businesses like the Carolina Mountains Land Conservancy and Hendersonville Community Co-op have both benefited from this investment vehicle.

Bonus! Every new Go Local CD investor will receive a FREE Go Local Card!

It takes just $500 to open a CD and you can learn more about the great work Self-Help Credit Union does by visiting them HERE.
