Why Clackamas?

Mount hood at sunset

For over 60 years, Clackamas Federal Credit Union has been helping families and businesses in our community achieve their goals. We’re a not-for-profit cooperative dedicated to your financial success. Every day, you work hard for the good of those who rely on you. And every day, we work hard for you.

We’re in your corner.

When you do well, everyone — from our staff to our member base — does better, too. That’s the beauty of a credit union. But at Clackamas, it goes deeper. We’re fiercely committed to helping you ace your game, to do more, and go further with what you have.

Knowledge

Be confident in your financial decisions. Be empowered. Our knowledge is yours for the taking.

Involvement

We partner with organizations that work to improve Clackamas County, enriching our community.

Integrity

Three words: people over profit. We work for your best interest, holding ourselves to high ethical standards.

If you don’t see yourself as a number, then you’ll like it at Clackamas.

Let’s make it personal

It feels different, banking with Clackamas. And the difference is personal. Members put it this way:

  • “They all know me and know my children, and they’re so sweet, every person there.” —Amora, member for 7 years
  • “Every time I come in, my teller makes me feel like I’m special.” —Donna, member for 10 years
  • “I’m impressed with their professionalism. Yet they don’t lose track of the personal.” —Dan, member for 40 years

We’re in it together

As a credit union, any profit that Clackamas makes is returned to you in the form of better rates, lower fees, and higher dividends — keeping the money in your pocket. Because our focus is local, we can give full attention to families, businesses, and charitable organizations right here in our community. It feels good to be part of a local cooperative that’s helping your neighbors achieve their financial goals, don’t you think?

Our directors work for you

Unlike a bank, which is owned by stockholders and governed by a paid board, Clackamas is a democratic cooperative. Our board members aren’t in it for the money; they’re volunteers who serve because they want to make a difference. And because you elect them, they’re accountable to act in your best interest.

It’s about community

Community is an important part of who we are. We were the first credit union to put down roots in Clackamas County more than 60 years ago. We’re still committed to giving back to our neighbors, today. We support local organizations by fundraising, making donations, and volunteering all year round.
