BECU isn’t a bank. It’s a credit union that began in 1935. A group of 18 workers were inspired by a revolutionary idea of pooling money to help one another without overcharging each other. The idea worked. That group began what is known today as BECU, and their efforts built the cornerstone of our “people helping people” co-op principle on which we’re founded. What would it be like for you, as an individual or a business, to take part? You’ll notice better rates and fewer fees; enjoy products and services at little or no cost to you and witness a dedicated interest from your credit union toward your community and nonprofits.
