We are a not-for-profit credit union that was founded by Bellingham teachers who pooled their money together in a shoebox in 1936. We offer excellent banking services with great rates and low fees. As a cooperative without owners or shareholders, our focus is on our members, not the bottom line. Serving our membership and the community means showing up and supporting those in need, which is why you’ll see us out volunteering with local nonprofits, providing scholarships to local students, and sponsoring local events that the community loves. Membership at WECU is open to residents of Washington State.
