Our Mission

Our Mission

Build. Innovate. Lead. The Westerra Way.

It is important to us to be the credit union of choice for our members, our employees and for the communities we serve. We do this by giving back more—we call it The Westerra Way. Members look to Westerra to help them achieve financial success. Every day, our focus is on fulfilling our mission to Build, Innovate and Lead.

BUILD Lasting Relationships

  • A Strong Local Heritage.  Westerra is the credit union formed by the merger of four of the state’s leading credit unions—DPS Credit Union, Safeway Rocky Mountain Federal Credit Union, Gateway Credit Union and Jeffco Credit Union.  This solid partnership is the foundation upon which Westerra is built. Our name combines the words west and terra, representing our region, and the land. Since 1934, we have offered opportunity and growth locally to our members—and our name reflects the solid base we continue to build upon.
  • A Trusted Resource. People trust Westerra Credit Union. Locally owned by our members, Westerra has earned a reputation as a trusted resource and a valued partner.  Members know they can count on their credit union as a safe place to save and borrow, with competitive rates, quality products, solid expertise, and top-notch service.
  • A Cooperative Spirit. We believe that more can be accomplished by working together.  Westerra puts this belief into action by working cooperatively with our sponsor organizations and by taking a leadership role in our local communities and the state and national credit union community.

INNOVATE For Success

  • Advanced Technology, Products and Service. The combined strength of Westerra allows us to enhance our products and service quality through technology, offering members greater financial convenience. Services are delivered by friendly, professional staff and are exclusively priced for Westerra members.
  • Outstanding Environment – Convenient Locations.  More than 250 employees of all skill and experience levels work together to meet the financial needs of Westerra members through numerous locations across the Denver metro area. Our modern facilities and people-oriented focus provide an excellent work environment.
  • Sharing the Experience.  Westerra Services, Inc., a wholly-owned Credit Union Service Organization of Westerra Credit Union, offers credit unions nationwide the benefits of scale enjoyed by larger credit unions through consultative and management services in areas such as vehicle remarketing and assistance with mergers. By sharing our knowledge, we help credit unions nationwide increase their value to members.

LEAD By Example

  • Dedicated Volunteers. Volunteerism makes credit unions unique. Westerra’s volunteers share their time, energy and vision to raise the bar for excellence in delivering quality financial services. Their innovation positions Westerra as a leader now and for the future.
  • A Focus on our Community. Representatives of Westerra volunteer on boards and committees throughout the communities we serve. You’ll also see Westerra assisting in financial literacy education in our classrooms, sponsoring community events, and providing business/employment opportunities. It is important to us to make a difference in the lives of the individuals and families who use our credit union—and the community we share.
  • Financial Strength. Our vision is to be the leading credit union cooperative helping members achieve financial success. We set high standards for excellence, personal responsibility and integrity in our daily operations and in our financial strength. Westerra has consistently received high marks from our governing regulatory agencies and has been safely serving members locally for over 85 years.
  • Working For You. At Westerra, we take great pride in the top-notch quality service provided by our professional staff. Our high standards and reputation for exceeding member expectations differentiate us from other financial institutions. The dedicated Westerra team is Working For You.
