Who We Are

Hi! We're glad you found us.
Welcome to the Cooperative Trust,
the award-winning credit union emerging leader community.

We host a passionate online community, lead the acclaimed Crash program, connect rising talent with thought leaders, and work with credit unions to strengthen their young adult strategy and engagement. 

We live by these words penned by Ed Filene, a founding father of the American credit union movement:

“Youth is too serious to become obedient.”

Rising Talent Spotlight

Each month we will highlight a past Crasher or another emerging leader. This person or group of people demonstrates the core values of the Filene Communities and works to disrupt the status quo to make cooperative finance accessible for everyone.

Who: Antonio DelVecchio

Role: Junior Programmer Analyst

Where: Connex Credit Union Inc., Connecticut


The crasher program was designed to lift up the credit union leaders of tomorrow, and I’m glad to have connected with sixty of them. The credit union space now extends far past my cubicle walls. I now have a network that extends across fifty states, and it’s hard to feel afraid when you know you have a team to move forward with.”
