Why More Coloradans Are Choosing Westerra

Locally-Owned By Our Members

As a not-for-profit financial cooperative, Westerra is owned by all who have accounts at the credit union. There are no stockholders – all proceeds are returned to members through higher dividends on savings, lower rates on loans, lower fees and enhanced convenience. More Coloradans are choosing Westerra. Here's why:

A Focus on Education - Westerra believes everyone should have the information they need to manage their money. We were started by teachers 85 years ago – and we’re still committed to helping people learn.  Call us with your questions at 303-321-4209 or attend a free seminar
