ABOUT US

UNION PROUD HISTORY

Since 1954, our mission has been to serve the financial needs of the hardest working trades...carpenters, millwrights, pile drivers & floor coverers!

Our Story

Originally chartered in 1954, Carpenters Credit Union is a not-for-profit, member-owned financial cooperative. We are a dedicated, unionized partner with a closed field of membership, allowing us to provide the unique and individualized service our members expect and cannot find anywhere else.

Carpenters Credit Union was established by carpenters who were having a difficult time receiving loans from traditional banks. These carpenters decided that it would be better to establish a credit union that would loan money to their fellow carpenters. Early success of the Credit Union came from knowing the members, working with them day in and day out, while holding them accountable to their financial obligations. Through the years the Credit Union has added more products and services, while still focusing on the initial reason the credit union was founded. Carpenters Credit Union is here to help union members with all their financial needs and goals.

As of 2022, the Credit Union had approximately 22,000 members and $43 million in assets.
