About WESTconsin Credit Union

Founded in 1939, WESTconsin Credit Union is one of the region's strongest financial services provider. Our history takes us back to primarily serving the Menomonie area agricultural community, then operating as Menomonie Farmers Credit Union. We expanded in membership base over the next several years and merged with other small credit unions in the region. In the summer of 1990, we recognized this growth by changing our name to WESTconsin Credit Union. Today, our field of membership footprint includes twenty-five counties across west central Wisconsin and east central Minnesota with offices in Amery, Baldwin, Barron, Eau Claire, Ellsworth, Hudson, Menomonie, New Richmond, Prescott, River Falls and Spring Valley, Wisconsin.

We exist to serve the financial needs of our member-owners (accountholders) and our communities. As a not-for-profit financial services organization, we are owned and operated by and for our members. Our members receive dividends back on a daily basis in the form of low-fee products and services. In addition, our not-for-profit status enables us to operate at a lower cost than many for-profit institutions, and helps WESTconsin offer competitive loan and savings rates to our members. We're based right here in your community, owned by community members like you. You get a higher level of personal service, and can build a long-lasting relationship with people who can help you find the best financial solutions to your unique needs.

Credit Unions Follow These Principles

Not-for-profit—We exist to serve our members, not to make a profit.

Ownership—Credit unions are an economic democracy whereas each member has equal ownership and voice.

Elected Boards—Every credit union is governed by a board of directors, elected through the membership.

Membership Eligibility—By federal statute, credit unions cannot serve the general public; people qualify through their county of residence, employer, or organizational affiliations.

Financial Education for Members—Through specialized programs, credit unions assist members to become better-educated consumers of financial services.

Social Purpose: People Helping People—This is the founding philosophy among all cooperatives. Our goal is to serve our entire field of membership well – every member counts. This ‘people-first’ mindset empowers our members and employees to get involved in many charitable activities and worthwhile causes.
