Northwest Community Credit Union is a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative born and raised in Oregon. We’ve been a feature of the Pacific Northwest since 1949. Our mission is simple: build member wealth. While we started helping forestry workers meet their financial needs, times have changed. Today, more Oregonians play in the great outdoors rather than work in them. Our “community charter” allows us to assist most Oregonians throughout the State.
Northwest Community Credit Union--Northwest of Banking—is a charismatic brand. We use the term charisma become it is our technique to be memorable and garner more attention than our size and budget would indicate or allow.
Northwest of Banking is both an internal and an external message. First it’s an internal organizational commitment to create and deliver the best possible products and services. As a market message, it is designed to address two challenges: Make clear that Northwest Community Credit Union is an alternative to banking as usual and that Northwest Community will exceed your expectations.
As a not-for-profit cooperative, we are not preoccupied with delivering profit to remote investors. The only “investors” we need to satisfy are our customers—what we call members. In a nutshell, that’s what we mean by Northwest of Banking.
