Unitus has gone through a few changes since we started as the Oregon Telephone Employees Credit Union in 1937, but our core principle of “People Helping People” has never changed. At Unitus, our members always come first.
More Than 80 Years of Experience
In 1937, the employees of Pacific Telephone & Telegraph realized the need for a financial institution whose first priority would be to serve its members, not profit off them. The organization they founded is now Unitus Community Credit Union.
Invested in the Northwest
We serve 100,000 members in the Pacific Northwest and employ more than 250 individuals who share our passion for serving the community.
Empowering our Members
We help to make our members stronger financially by providing financial education, exceptional products and services, and personal service.
Enriching our Community
Building on the ideals of our founders, we operate with the same commitment to improving our local community.

Dedicated to the Financial Well-Being of Our Membership
Unitus has been a part of this community for more than 80 years, currently serving 15 counties in Oregon and the entire state of Washington. We are committed to exceptional member service and value working together to be dependable and flexible. Unitus is a full-service financial institution that looks beyond “an answer” to find the right solution for you.
We strongly believe in supporting the well-being of our members, fostering financial education, and working one-on-one with you to help you find your unique path to financial wellness and security.
Awards and Recognition
Over the past years, Unitus has received several industry honors and local awards that reflect our long-standing commitment to our members and community. We couldn’t have earned these recognitions without your support, and we want to thank you, our members, for helping make Unitus a valued financial and community partner.
