About Matanuska Valley Federal Credit Union


The Credit Union was chartered on December 7, 1948, when 20 members pooled a combined share balance of $395.00. Growth was slow at first, and all work was done by volunteers. However, through the perseverance and vision of many MVFCU pioneers, the Credit Union has grown and thrived. Today, MVFCU is one of the leading financial institutions in Alaska, with over 58,000 members and almost $935 million in assets. MVFCU serves members in Alaska and the Waipahu Neighborhood Board #22 of the City and County of Honolulu, Hawaii. In addition, MVFCU has expanded its charter to include all of Alaska, continuing the focus on serving the underserved. As a growing and expanding credit union, MVFCU actively supports the communities it serves, both financially and through employees volunteering hundreds of hours annually at local events.  Thanks to the many volunteers, our nearly 170 dedicated staff, and faithful members, MVFCU continues to see growth and success for its members and partnering communities.
