Heritage Credit Union
The Oscar Mayer meat production company moved operations to Madison, WI, in the early 1900’s. During the struggles of the Great Depression, Adolph C. Bolz, the son-in-law of Oscar Mayer, opened his own billfold to lend the employees of Oscar Mayer a few dollars between paychecks. In October of 1934, the practice was made permanent when Heritage Credit Union was incorporated, and the employees could pool their resources together to help each other.
Heritage Credit Union serves more than 27,000 members in two states. They are a strong financial institution with $285 million in assets and more than 100 employees, who continuously look for ways to save their members money, reach out to their communities and enhance their services.www.heritagecu.org
