Economic & Community Impact
Credit unions help drive local economies and reinvest earnings into member-owners.
Economists at ECONorthwest, one of the region’s most respected economic firms, have performed an analysis of credit unions’ positive impact in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming.
Credit unions not only serve their members but also help drive local economies, which correlates to a positive impact across the region. Credit unions’ not-for-profit, cooperative structure, local footprint, and community engagement drive a unique impact that benefits the economy and provides people with tangible financial services and benefits they might not otherwise have access to.
