The financial well-being of our community members  

In 2021, Elevations offered dozens of free online financial education seminars for thousands of attendees on topics like planning for retirement, buying a house, saving for college and more.  

Youth financial literacy  

Elevations provides more financial education programs for K-12 students than any other credit union in Colorado.  

Elevations is ranked as a top 5 volunteer partner of Junior Achievement-Rocky Mountain, Inc., dedicated to preparing young people to succeed in a global economy.  

The homeownership goals of your neighbors  

Elevations is Colorado’s No. 1 credit union mortgage lender, helping Coloradans buy homes and refinance to save across the state.  

Elevations has joined forces with other top credit unions in Northern Colorado on the House that Credit Unions Built project. The home is being built as a part of Harmony Cottages, the largest development in Habitat for Humanity Fort Collins history.  

Local businesses  

Elevations provides financial solutions for 8,000+ local businesses.  

In 2021, Elevations hosted educational seminars focused on helping nonprofits in our community grow and succeed.  

The Elevations Business Banking Team provided resources and education on options like Paycheck Protection Program loans to support small businesses during the pandemic. 

Volunteering in our community  

Elevations employees get 16 hours of volunteer time off every year. From 2014 – 2021, Elevations employees volunteered over 14,000 hours with organizations across the Front Range.  

Growing in Fort Collins  

We are honored to serve more members in Northern Colorado by opening a new branch in Old Town Fort Collins and a new drive-thru location on Harmony Road.  

We were proud to host our real estate community, nonprofit friends, and members at our new Fort Collins branches to celebrate our deepening commitment to Fort Collins.
