Our Story

The credit union's doors opened on April 2, 1951, with 122 shareholders, $2,700 in assets and a single volunteer. By 1976, six people were employed and membership had grown to almost 6,000. Since 1976, Commonwealth Credit Union's assets have grown from $2.8 million to more than $1 billion.

Today, Commonwealth Credit Union has members from all over Kentucky, and all around the world, in all walks of life. We are also the Official Credit Union of the University of Louisville. 

Bettering Lives Through our Passion to Serve
We named ourselves Commonwealth to remind us of who we are here to serve. Over the course of 70 years, we have grown from only one employee to a team that is over 300 employees strong with 16 branches throughout Central Kentucky and the Louisville Metro Area. We've been here supporting generations of families through good times and bad, staying up to date with technology but never losing sight of the value of our personal touch.
