About Us

Bank On Burque is a part of a national program which has more than 100 Bank On coalitions nationwide (see a map and list of Bank On coalitions across the country). The national platform supports local coalition efforts to improve individual and family financial stability by connecting consumers to safe, affordable checking accounts (Bank On certified accounts). 

As a City of Albuquerque economic inclusion initiative, Bank On Burque strives to connect individuals and families to Bank On certified accounts available in the Albuquerque community thus ensuring that low-cost, no overdraft, no-surprise-fee bank and credit union accounts are an option for unbanked and under served individuals. The Bank On Burque Coalition is an alliance working toward that end.
