Our History

A few Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) employees worked together in 1942 to found our credit union, giving their fellow co-workers a way to loan each other money and grow their savings through a member-owned cooperative. Back then we were known as BPA Federal Credit Union. Today we still serve federal employees, and we’ve been able to expand our charter to serve the local community as well.

We merged with Hessell-TPC Credit Union in 1999, with Mountain Valley Federal Credit Union in 2000, and with Pacific Retailers Omni Federal Credit Union in 2001. Then in 2004 we expanded our eligibility to Hood River and the surrounding areas, as well as a community in NE Portland. And in 2018 we expanded our eligibility to the entire Portland Metro area, including Clackamas, Columbia, Hood River, Multnomah, Washington, and Yamhill Counties in Oregon, and Clark and Skamania Counties in Washington.

Our primary goal is to satisfy our members’ financial needs with a high level of service, using three strategic objectives:

  • Be our members’ financial partner for life.
  • Ensure that the credit union’s financial performance remains strong.
  • Achieve balanced growth.

Now in our 77th year of providing outstanding service to our amazing members, we are growing and excited for the future!  Learn more about us at
