Our story began in 1973 when 35 Johns Manville employees gathered their funds together and started our credit union as a member-owned financial cooperative. We grew rapidly over the years, serving only employees, retirees, and family members of Johns Manville. In 1998, we expanded our membership to include other employer groups and local communities, enabling us to continue our growth and help more people with their finances. In 2005, we changed our name from Johns Manville Credit Union to Colorado Credit Union, to better reflect our growing membership. In 2009, we expanded into the Brighton community as Brighton Federal Credit Union was merged into CCU. A few years later in 2014, Englewood Municipal Employees Federal Credit Union was merged into CCU, which allowed us to better serve the Englewood community. Today, we proudly serve more than 20,000 members across several employer groups and communities in Colorado.
In October 2019, we proudly announced our new logo, colors, and tagline! We are thriving and experiencing exceptional growth and want to better represent CCU while maintaining our dedication and superior service to all members! Our new logo represents Colorado’s natural beauty and symbolizes guidance, exploration, and stewardship. The ‘C’ outline represents our strong bond with our state. The mountain represents strength and stability while outlining the Maroon Bells. The soaring eagle is a symbol of freedom and courage. Warmth, optimism, and growth are symbolized by the yellow sun. The ‘JM blue’ color represents our heritage and connection, as we were originally chartered to serve the employees of the Johns Manville corporation. Our new tagline —‘Love Where You Live, Love Where You Bank’ — describes how our members feel about Colorado and CCU. Many things have changed since 1973, but our dedication to you and your financial well-being has remained our top priority. We remain committed to providing exceptional products and providing superior service to our members.
