About Us

On July 31, 1951 ten enterprising people, with limited resources but unlimited faith, pooled their money to form Creston & District Credit Union. These pioneers realized the need for a broadly based financial institution and recognized that people have the power to build on their strengths. Sometimes, all that is required are the tools.

From the beginning, Creston & District Credit Union has been committed to active participation in the communities it serves. Today, after six decades of service to these communities, the credit union stands as a testament to the faith of its founders, and serves as an example of what can be accomplished when people work together for a common purpose.

With a state-of-the-art service delivery system, a broad array of products which provide numerous choices, and exceptionally dedicated employees, the credit union has grown and prospered along with its members.

Mission Statement

Creston & District Credit Union is and will continue to be a sound, profitable, independent, progressive, service-oriented financial institution.  We are democratic and member-owned, dedicated to serving our members' needs and committed to contributing to the well-being of our community.
