Credit Union History
Denver Community Credit Union has been in the community for years.
We were established in 1934 as the Municipal Employee Credit Union of Denver. Over the years we changed and grew into the Denver Community Credit Union you know today.
We offer our members convenience while keeping the local feel.
In addition to the three locations we currently employ, Denver Community Credit Union became part of the CO-OP Shared Branching Network to give members access to over 4,000 Shared Branching locations nation-wide, and about 200 locations in Colorado alone!
We work to improve the community.
Denver Community has locally donated over $86,000 since 2005 with no government tax incentive to do so. Some beneficiaries include Denver Public Library, Education Cents, Mount Saint Vincent, Newborns in Need, and Homes for Our Troops.
Denver Community touches many in the community with financial education.
Our award-winning Clear Money Program has educated thousands of Coloradoans through free classes, online radio, and other financial counseling.

We believe in the Credit Union Difference.
We are a credit union and that means we differ from banks. As a member, you actually get to have an ownership in Denver Community Credit Union. We focus on providing a level of service that is not found at most financial institutions. Because you are a member-owner, you are our focus. We strive to find the best financial solutions for you, without the pushy sales-pitches. Plus since credit unions are not-for-profits, we are able to return our success to you with higher dividends and lower interest rates. We are, in fact local, meaning Denver Community Credit Union really does care about the surrounding community. The Credit Union Difference is great.
