Your Portland Credit Union - About Unitus
Mission Statement: Dedicated to the Financial Well-Being of Our Membership.
As one of the oldest credit unions in Portland, and the state of Oregon, Unitus Community Credit Union serves over 86,000 members on both sides of the Columbia with a wide range of helpful financial products and services designed to save you money or time. Or both!
Unitus has over 75 years of experience serving our members, starting when we were Oregon Telephone Employees Credit Union back in 1937.
We've seen a few changes since then, but our fundamental principle "People helping People" has never changed. Our members come first in all aspects of business. As a full-service financial institution, we're here to help you enjoy everything you've worked so hard for.
When you deposit money at Unitus, you instantly become a member. It's that easy. And as a member of the credit union, you become an owner. As an owner, you have a voice, and we encourage you to use it.
If you're just being introduced to credit unions, it's worth noting that we're a not-for-profit cooperative. After expenses are paid and reserves are set aside, our leftover earnings are returned to you as higher dividends, lower loan rates, and free or low-cost services.
In addition to our not-for-profit status, our Board of Directors is comprised of a group of dedicated volunteers. Our Board oversees the strategic direction of the credit union in Portland and beyond. Learn more about Unitus Board of Directors.
Our Board of Directors doesn't work alone. Our Management team is dedicated to the financial well-being of every member and employee. Learn more about Unitus' Management team.
The undeniable advantages—lower rates on loans, higher rates on savings, 24/7 account access, a dedicated management team and staff with your best interest at heart—are all around you.
