Our Purpose

We exist to teach one another to prosper. Plain and simple.

The Westerra humble-brag

Why us? Westerra's community is built on meaningful personal relationships, not just transactions (though those are easy and convenient, too!). We're here for you with real support for your goals, your money and your financial education. And others are taking notice! In 2024, we were selected for Newsweek’s “America’s Best Regional Banks and Credit Unions” – one of only five Colorado-based financial institutions (and only one of 3 credit unions) selected for this prestigious list. That's the Westerra way.

In seven years with Westerra, Cynnomon Gordon has grown as a person and a professional. Find out how she balances being our Director of the Fraud Department and Card Dispute Operations, and a part-time pool shark, in her "Swim or Swim" video. Congrats to our creative team for their work on this video, which received the 2024 “Diamond Award” in the America’s Credit Unions’ prestigious credit union marketing competition. It also earned the Category’s Best award in the “Video Non-Commercial – Single” category, meaning the video achieved the highest score within the credit union’s asset level grouping. Here at Westerra, we are proud to work with the best to give our best to our members!

A company rooted in education (literally)

Westerra was founded by eight school teachers in 1934. Since then, we've continued our commitment to teaching one another to prosper. Today Westerra is a modern financial community with a deep local heritage.
