BECU & You
At BECU, we focus our community efforts in three areas: Financial Empowerment, Member-Inspired Giving, and Employee-Inspired Giving.
BECU works to ensure our members have a solid financial foundation. We offer members opportunities to learn at events like our annual Member Summit.
Our people aren’t just helpful, they’re helping others! BECU is a proud supporter of our employees’ volunteer efforts, and gives time, money and resources to help.
Our members are dedicated to their communities so we created the People Helping People Awards as a way for them to help decide which local non-profits BECU supports.
BECU was founded by Boeing employees in 1935. We started with $9 and a loan for $2.50 to a Boeing employee for tools. Every year we celebrate Founders Week and the history of credit unions.
Learn about special events happening in or around your community. BECU is proud to host or participate in these events.
We’re committed to supporting local organizations that assist in financial education and/or entrepreneurial development.
As a not-for-profit, member-owned cooperative credit union, BECU honors and supports our members and our communities. By putting our members first, we pay it forward in a way that can truly make a difference.
BECU Foundation Scholarships annually award $2,500 scholarships to a minimum of 25 students with a passion for helping others.
Teaching financial literacy to individuals before they embark on their adult lives helps teens develop and make educated saving and spending decisions.
