LYNNWOOD — Inspirus Credit Union opened a Lynnwood branch this week, the third location for the credit union founded in 1936 by a Seattle math and journalism teacher.
“Opening this branch will benefit our members who live north of Seattle,” said President and CEO Scott Adkins, in a statement. “We’ve already started building friendships and partnerships within the community, and are excited to continue serving our members and the education community in this area.”
The other branches are in Seattle and Spokane.
The credit union, with 80,000 members, purchased a 27,000-square-foot building at 3405 188th St. SW, a block south of the Alderwood mall last year.
The credit union renovated the building, which houses eight tenants. About 30 credit union employees occupy space on the second and fourth floors of the building.
Inspirus has $1.1 billion in assets. The credit union offers an education-giveback program that allows members to contribute to schools in their communities. Inspirus employees also donate upwards of 1,000 volunteer hours a year to education causes. And Community Education Representatives provide free financial seminars, professional development and recognition to school employees statewide.
Inspirus plans to hold a a series of events from Oct. 10-15 to celebrate the opening of the Lynnwood branch. Visit www.inspirusCU.org for details.
