Membership

 

Credit unions are not-for-profit financial companies, with services similar to (but cultures different from) banks.   The association of credit unions is international and cooperative, supporting many developing communities and nations through outreach programs.   In turn, our developing small credit union has affiliated support to offer a wide menu of services.

Ashoka Credit Union was opened in January 1976 to serve the Buddhist, Shambhala, and Naropa communities. Ashoka was named by the founder, Vidhyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, for an ancient Buddhist prince in India who brought social services to his people, beginning with banking.

Ashoka also has the sanskrit meaning "without torment."   We aspire to banking without torment, and invite you to join us.

Currently our membership eligibility extends to Shambhala affiliated organizations and their members, students, families, business entities, and employees.
