A Bit of History

In June of 1956, seven Spokane area Federal Government employees came together to form Spokane Federal Credit Union. In the beginning, volunteers managed everything, accepting deposits and making loans. After the staff of Expo '74, Spokane's World's Fair, cleared out, we bought their headquarters building at 601 W. Mallon and are still there today. 

While the Credit Union may have started out with just a few passionate volunteers and only a few hundred dollars, we've managed to grow to the point where today we're roughly 12,000 members strong with around $150 million in assets.

As we continued to grow, we noticed many people in the community thought they had to be Federal employees to become a member because of our name, so in the summer of 2019 we changed our name to Canopy Credit Union - better representing who we're able to serve  We wanted a name that reflected not only where we've been and who we've become, but also a name that would better define our future. We chose Canopy Credit Union because it illustrates our ideals of being a safe place for members to grow, and appeals to a wider demographic - with a little nod to the Pacific Northwest. 

Canopy Credit Union is a place where your story matters. 

Here you grow.

Our Core Values

Be WOW Worthy

Why be good, when you can be great?  Our size will not limit us in exceeding members' expectations.  We don't want to be the biggest credit union; we want to be the best and won't settle for anything less!

Embrace FISH!

We will be there.  We will make someone's day.  We will play and have a little fun.  We will choose our attitudes during the good times, as well as the bad; that is what makes us sparkle.

Own It

We pride ourselves on accepting responsibility for our actions.  It is one of the key building blocks in developing successful relationships with our members and each other.

Working Towards a Common Vision

Canopy is a special place to work and to be a member.  At any given time, we are all striving to keep Canopy a welcoming, fun, friendly place while providing exceptional, personal service to our member-owners and being a caring neighbor in our community.  Dreamers welcome...

Build Open and Honest Relationships with Communication

We act with honesty and integrity without compromising the truth. We encourage the voice within each of us and hear each other fully.

Celebrate our Successes

We recognize and reward the achievements of one another, and share life's milestones with our members by having fun and celebrating our successes along the way.

At Canopy Credit Union, we work to WOW you.
