About Us

P1FCU is a member owned, not-for-profit financial institution that provides excellent service and competitive rates to our members. P1FCU is the Pacific Northwest Original Credit Union since 1938 offering products and services for all your financial needs including home and construction financing, commercial lending, business services, investments and more.

P1FCU was organized by 12 employees of Potlatch Forests Inc. and the original organization certificate was issued by the Farm Credit Administration on April 29th, 1938. The first organizational meeting was held almost one month later on May 20th, 1938, where 9 board members were elected after being nominated by the first nominating committee who was appointed by the original incorporators. Since May 20th, 1938, there has been a regular monthly board meeting for the credit union, per our bylaws. Over 80 years, that is more than 950 meetings!

We have grown to now serve members in 15 counties in Idaho, 8 counties in Oregon and the entire state of Washington. We were organized by a group of individuals with the desire to make lending more readily available for employees of Potlatch Forests, Inc. Over 80 years later we are staying true to our organizational values while servicing members in a tri-state region.
