We currently operate in Idaho Falls, Ammon, Shelley, Rexburg, St. Anthony, Arco, Challis and Salmon and serve more than 30,000 members. We are operated by the members and for the members to improve the financial situations of individuals, families, and local businesses. Our daily operations are guided by the credit union philosophy of Not for Profit, Not for Charity, But for Service.
East Idaho Credit Union was chartered in 1935 as Idaho Falls U.S. Government Employees Federal Credit Union. Our mission was to provide services to the employees of the federal government in Idaho Falls. We opened our doors with $52.75 in deposits from our 24 original members.
In 1960 we expanded our field of membership to include federal employees in the nine Eastern Idaho counties of Bonneville, Butte, Custer, Clark, Fremont, Jefferson, Lemhi, Madison, and Teton.
On June 20, 1963 the credit union changed its name to East Idaho Federal Credit Union to better reflect our mission and growing membership, and on October 1, 1998 we converted to a state charter to be known as East Idaho Credit Union.
While East Idaho Credit Union has remained committed to providing local financial services to small and underserved communities in Eastern Idaho, we have grown safely and soundly to nearly $263 million in assets, and more than 36,000 members.
At East Idaho Credit Union we invest in our local communities, working together with our members in 2015 we raised nearly $30,000 for Children’s Miracle Network; $19,000 for Coins for Christmas to provide 1242 pairs of shoes for children in need; and more than $1000 in toys for toys for tots. We also provide four scholarships annually to students pursuing higher education.
