Member Benefits

When you work with Badgerland Financial, the benefits you receive go beyond specialized products, services and expertise to meet your financial needs. We work hard to cultivate your rural life. Here's a look at some of the programs, activities and more that we offer.  

Cooperative Benefits

Patronage Program
Over the last 12 years, our patronage-eligible member-borrowers have received over $111 MILLION in cash patronage dividends, sharing in the very profits they helped to create.

Voting Privileges

Because Badgerland Financial operates on a cooperative basis, our more than 16,000 customers are our owners and help shape who we are. If you are a lending customer, you have purchased voting stock, giving you the right to participate in Board of Director elections and vote on any special issues coming before the member-owners. Director elections take place each spring.
