About Us

We’re Northwest of Banking. We do most of the
things that banks do, but we do them for different
reasons and that changes everything. Like banks,
we still have to bring the greatest profit we can to
our shareholders, but our shareholders are the
people that bank with us. We call them members
and we see them face-to-face every day at the
teller counter or the drive up window. Since every
member is a part owner, this means we have
different priorities than a corporately owned
institution. And that’s just the beginning! Read
more about what makes us stand out.

Learn about Northwest Community and Credit Unions

Topic Summary

Mission and History Our credit union was founded by local workers right here in Oregon in 1949. Even though the times have changed, our mission is still the same: We’re here to help our members and communities save money and build wealth. Read more about where we come from and what we believe in on our Mission and History page.
