From modest beginnings in 1953, Gesa Credit Union has grown from a part-time office operating out of a shoebox to the fifth largest credit union in Washington state, serving over 150,000 members around the world. Gesa Credit Union has a rich history of providing financial services to Eastern Washington and our spirit still reflects the early-day Credit Union motto, "people helping people."
Since 1996, when Gesa became a community-chartered credit union and opened its field of membership to everyone in Washington, the credit union experienced explosive growth. Consumers have discovered the value of banking with a not-for-profit cooperative. Gesa now has sixteen Member Service Centers (MSCs) and one Loan Center in six counties but will always maintain a strong commitment to its roots. People in our communities have made Gesa what it is today, and we don't take that loyalty for granted. Our members continually remind us, "It's not where you bank. It's where you belong."
