Clearwater Credit Union is part of the Global Alliance for Banking on Values (GABV). Those aren’t just pretty words: our values drive our strategic plan and shape our company culture.
Together, We Own
We practice responsible banking, grounded in cooperative ownership.
We believe our first responsibility is to serve our members.
Together, We Empower
We solve problems and create opportunities for a better tomorrow.
We empower our team and our members with access to information, education, and decision-making.
Together, We Include
We choose to be inclusive, not exclusive.
We seek to include all walks of life in our work. We welcome diversity and recognize it as critical to our performance.
Together, We Matter
We are committed to making a difference in the world.
We deliver impact by acting as a catalyst for positive, social, economic, and environmental change.
Some banks – credit unions even – pursue profit and don’t think so much about the outcomes and impact of the work they’re doing. We work in the other direction.— Jack Lawson, President & CEO
Building a world we believe in
Our mission is to be a force for good in banking, in the communities we serve, and in the lives of our members.
By living our values, we’ll redefine the role financial institutions play in building thriving, sustainable communities.
I am a member of the credit union because their values mirror my values. They’re part of the community that I live in and they’re also creating the world that they want to live in like I am.— Jennifer, member since 1993.
Local lender, local borrowers
As a member of your credit union, you make a difference. Your accounts fuel loans to local organizations, and your local purchases empower us to help those in need — at home and throughout Montana.Learn about our work with ORI

Too many companies talk about their values, but don’t live them. As a team, we hold ourselves accountable to our promises. We want you to hold us accountable, too.
