The Northwest Credit Union Foundation works with credit unions and community partners to provide solutions to pressing issues impacting the financial health of the people and communities they serve.  We convene thought leaders, regional stakeholders, and community partners to help credit unions achieve greater community impact in the areas of asset building, economic empowerment, and cooperative development. We also support credit unions in developing and furthering the future of the Credit Union Movement. We know that by working with credit unions, we can help people achieve financial prosperity.

If you are interested in working with credit unions to make an impact in your community or are a credit union looking to partner, please feel free to reach out to us. The Foundation is here as a collaborator, a convener, and a partner for credit union-led initiatives.
