CUW honored as AF credit union of year


Serving military members and veterans is foundational to Credit Union West, which was established in 1951 as Luke Federal Credit Union and founded on Luke Air Force Base. The tradition of serving the military continues today, earning them the distinction of being named the Air Force Credit Union of the Year in 2018, the highest possible award for an on-base financial institution.

“It is an incredible honor to be selected over dozens of other institutions nationwide for this prestigious award,” said Bob MacGregor, CUW CEO. “We are proud of our long tradition of serving the Luke AFB community, as well as the larger military member and veteran community in Maricopa and Yavapai counties.”

Credit Union West is known for its financial education initiatives and support for non-profit military and veteran organizations like Soldier’s Best Friend, the Veteran Success Project and Cell Phones for Soldiers.

“On behalf of all of us at Credit Union West, we humbly accept this award and thank the Luke AFB community for recognizing us,” said MacGregor.
