Free Software Foundation members living in the US are now eligible to
join the Digital Federal Credit Union for their banking, thanks to DCU
approving us as a participating organization. DCU is, like the FSF, a
nonprofit headquartered in Massachusetts, with members in all 50
states.

 * Sign-up with DCU: <http://www.dcu.org/>
 * Share this story: <http://ur1.ca/57wgw>

We are working to be able to offer this same opportunity to the many
members living in other countries as well, but so far we have not been
able to find appropriate partner organizations. If you know of a
credit union in your country that would be willing to work with us
please let us know at <membership@fsf.org>!

Credit unions are cooperative and often nonprofit financial
institutions which provide the same services as banks, but because
they are member-owned, there can be dramatic differences from banks in
the cost of borrowing money and use of their services. DCU is both
nonprofit and democratically controlled, which means you and other
members elect a volunteer board of directors to run things. The
management then reports to this board.

If you'd like to take advantage of this benefit, head to
<https://www.dcu.org/> and complete their application.


*Thank you to Danny Piccirillo, who did the work to make this possible
while interning at the FSF last year.*
