Tacoma’s original credit union (now open to many others)
City Credit Union of Tacoma, founded in 1934 by nine city employees who sought a better way of banking. The credit union’s first branch was located under the stairs of the Old City Hall in downtown. As membership grew, the name changed to Tacoma-Pierce County Employees Credit Union and was eventually consolidated to TAPCO Credit Union to represent Tacoma and Pierce County. As Pierce County’s oldest credit union, we are proud of our roots in the community.
Membership is available for anyone who lives, goes to school, works or worships in the state of Washington. As a not-for-profit financial cooperative, those who bank with TAPCO are considered member-owners and benefit from the organization’s success. Each member has one vote, regardless of how much they have on deposit, which ensures democratic member control. At TAPCO, we take great pride in serving our members each day and helping them reach their financial goals.
