Our Mission

Our Mission

Care Deeply. Educate Endlessly. Enrich Life.

We believe we exist to provide every single person in our community with the knowledge to make sound financial decisions, to dream big about their future, and to provide their family with the ability to lean into life with full confidence.  We believe that financial comfort isn’t only for the wealthy, but can be had by everyone.  

Care Deeply 

  • 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.

Educate Endlessly

  • 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.

Enrich Life

  • 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 a financial community empowering members to achieve their dreams. 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.

A financial community empowering members to achieve their dreams.
