Our HistoryOpened EntryClosed Entry

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. 

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 membership eligibility to Hood River and the surrounding areas, as well as a community in NE Portland.

In 2018 we expanded to serve the entire Portland Metro area, including Clackamas, Columbia, Hood River, Multnomah, Washington, and Yamhill Counties in Oregon, and Clark and Skamania Counties in Washington.
