The Story of #CU1LUV

Share the #CU1LUV

Maybe you've noticed (or maybe you're new here - welcome!) but Credit Union 1 is different from other financial institutions in a lot of ways. 

We’re state-chartered, for instance, which is extremely important because it means that Alaska will ALWAYS be the only state we serve. As Alaskans ourselves, we’re committed to the unique needs of people who live and work in our state!

Credit Union 1 is proud to help foster thriving, happy communities by always putting people first. Our credit union calls this homegrown passion #CU1LUV, and it inspires everything we do.

  • Take a moment to explore our latest newsletter, for a full scoop of #CU1LUV from the mouths of our members!

If you’ve ever felt like banks have their values backwards or like your credit union should stay local and loyal, then rest assured that you’re on the right path with Credit Union 1. We live each and every day with the mission to lead change, uplift others and value people – and we achieve this goal in a wide variety of ways.

Lead Change

While other institutions lend money to pad their own pockets, Credit Union 1 is lending money to help you reach your life goals. Our credit union is not for profit and 100% member owned, which means we recycle all income toward our members’ needs, because YOU are why we exist.

Uplift Others

Through volunteerism, fundraising, lending money and reaching out a hand to our neighbors when they need it most, we’re committed to uplifting Alaskans each and every day. Have we made a difference in your life? Share your story here, or tag us with #CU1LUV on social media.

Value People

Through the #CU1LUV Community Fund, Alaskan nonprofits can apply for assistance on behalf of a client they are serving whose food, shelter or health is at risk. This fund is supported by money that Credit Union 1 donates on behalf of members who finance loans with us.
