Our History

In 1949, six friends with nothing but a desire to help each other got together over a dinner break at the Weyerhaeuser Company and put $50 in a lunchbox. That same year, the Weyerhaeuser Springfield Federal Credit Union made its first loan. 

We may have more members than we did in 1949, but we at Northwest Community Credit Union have held unwaveringly to our commitment to treat everyone with the courtesy, dignity, and respect they deserve. 

Our team is dedicated to providing each individual (and our community) with exceptional service, and to help each family find resources to improve their financial future. Our dedication to this mission plays a large role in our rich heritage of serving our region for 70 years.
