Our History

TwinStar Credit Union started as a teachers’ credit union 1938. In those days, it was hard to get a small loan, especially on a teacher's salary. In 1937 a math teacher, Dewey Noblitt, brought together 15 teachers and came up with the idea that became Thurston County Teachers Credit Union.

Our brand promise is Realizing Financial Dreams Together, because we are committed to our members and communities. Unlike banks, every member has a stake in their credit union. By investing in people and our communities, we are staying true to TwinStar’s mission and core values. Many other banking institutions do not make the same promise.

TwinStar is owned by the very people we serve – you. We do not have big investors pressuring us to enrich shareholders, so we don't have to raise fees on every tiny thing. Credit unions return earnings to members in the form of checking rewards, better deposit rates, low to no fees and lower interest rates on loans. In a word, we want to reward you.

You can join us if you are living or working in Washington state, or in Benton, Clackamas, Coos, Crook, Deschutes, Douglas, Jackson, Jefferson, Josephine, Klamath, Lane, Linn, Marion, Multnomah, or Washington counties in Oregon
