Our Diamond Anniversary

It all began in 1947 in Washington, DC. A small group of individuals gathered together at a local pub to discuss the idea of establishing a safe and secure place to borrow and save. From there, Northwest was born and began to grow.

For our 75th anniversary we will reflect on our history, celebrate how we serve our members and communities today, and continue our commitment to becoming the lifetime financial partner for our members. It’s a celebration of Then. Now. Next.
