Local and loyal since 1952
Alaska is Our Home
As a full-service financial institution that serves over 85,000 Alaskans, Credit Union 1 is proud to help foster thriving, happy communities by always putting people first.
Each year, Credit Union 1 is proud to offer the Bill Countryman Scholarship program to Alaskans of all ages who are pursuing higher education goals. In the words of our honored past board member Bill Countryman, "education and adventure are what keep you young!"
Members Come First
Credit Union 1 is a member-owned cooperative. This means everything we do is in service to YOU, and not for shareholder gain! You have the power to shape your financial future, and you can trust that we're here to help.
We call this homegrown passion #CU1LUV, and it inspires everything we do.
As an Alaska credit union that only serves our home state, Credit Union 1 is proud to help foster thriving, happy communities by always putting people first. We live each and every day with the mission to
value people– and we achieve this goal by lending money, fundraising, volunteering our time, teaching financial education and more.
Help Us Help Others
Credit Union 1 is helping Alaskans whose food, health or shelter is at risk by donating a portion of every loan you finance with us to the Uplifting Others Fund. Now, when you finance a CU1 loan toward your own life goals – or refinance an existing loan to Credit Union 1 – you’re making a much larger impact on the lives of those around you.
Donate and Make a Difference
Each month, Credit Union 1 hosts a different fundraiser to support the causes our members care about throughout Alaska. 100% of the funds we raise go toward Alaskan nonprofits and the well-being of your friends and neighbors across our state!
