Thanks for checking out this section on our website. We hope that you will find Colorado Credit Union a great place to do your banking. Below is some helpful information regarding the credit union and how we feel we make a difference in our members’ lives.
Colorado Credit Union was chartered in 1973 when about 35 Johns Manville employees gathered their funds together and started the credit union, a member owned financial cooperative. We grew rapidly, serving only employees, retirees and family members of Johns Manville. In 1998, we decided to open our membership to other employer groups and associations, realizing the need to grow and help more people with their finances.
We changed our name from Johns Manville Credit Union to Colorado Credit Union in 2005, to better reflect our diverse membership. We continue to be the bank of choice for the majority of Johns Manville employees and retirees. We've also become the primary financial institution for thousands of other people as well. Many businesses and associations now offer the credit union benefit to their employees and members.
In 2009, we merged Brighton Federal Credit Union into CCU. This credit union was founded in 1954 by local teachers and continues to focus on the needs of its teacher members. This allowed us to become part of the Brighton and surrounding area communities. This change brought 1,800 new members to experience what great member service is about. This addition brought with it the 27J teachers and students, the City of Brighton, Platte Valley Medical Center and several large area churches. We are proud to have a presence in this outstanding community and are thrilled to add it to our Littleton and Denver membership base.
Our members are loyal! Colorado Credit Union has nearly the highest ratio of assets and loan balances per member of any credit union our size in the U.S. We help many people with their borrowing needs as well as helping people accumulate wealth with our outstanding savings products.
Many things have changed since 1973 but our commitment to personalized financial service has been unwavering. You'll only deal with real people at CCU. Real people answer our phones, evaluate your financial goals and recommend solutions that make sense. We offer a full array of financial services, and you can expect a smile.
