Our Community Commitment

Columbia Credit Union is proud to contribute to the success of our members and our community. For our community to be successful, we believe ensuring the well-being of our residents and local businesses takes top priority. We form partnerships with organizations that share our vision of vitality to assist children and families, education, the local economy, arts and culture, physical and mental health, housing and the environment. For an overview of our accomplishments, please see our 2017 Annual Report.

 

Everyday Green

Columbia Credit Union began instituting green practices years ago, when sustainability wasn’t an expected practice in the financial services industry. Our green practices continue today as an integral part of our operations and guide our approach to serving the needs of our community.
