CNote is a technology platform that provides a sustainable flow of non-member deposits that are low-cost and deliver consistent value. This service is available at no cost to CUNA member credit unions as arranged by CUNA Strategic Services.

Who is CNote?

CNote’s community investment technology connects credit unions to non-member deposit opportunities. A women-led social enterprise on a mission to close the wealth gap in the United States, CNote has made it easier for individuals and large institutions like Mastercard, PayPal and Sierra Club to move deposits into mission-aligned credit unions. 

How a strategic alliance with CNote benefits credit unions

Think of CNote technology as the “pipes” that unlock competitive and impactful community investments across America. The CNote Promise Account is a cash management solution designed as a single management point for institutions and corporations to make for deposits with positive social impact. These deposits come to your credit union via CNote for you to utilize as you support members in your community.
