Financial success is a journey and we’re here to help you every step of the way.

With these tools, plus many more, you can confidently live your best financial life.
We believe in creating a strong, supportive community within our membership, but that belief doesn’t stop at the door. We’re committed to helping the communities that we operate in thrive. We proudly contribute to numerous local charitable organizations through the volunteer efforts of our board of directors, our employee-run Community Matters volunteer program and Liberty Bay’s charitable gifting program.
A Common Experience at Liberty Bay Credit Union
These days, courtesy isn’t all that common. At Liberty Bay, we stand for small gestures. For holding doors for others. And smiling at strangers. We believe in not-so-random acts of kindness. And a daily dose of doing good. We hail helpful hands and fight for friendliness. We believe in putting other people first and creating exceptional experiences. We believe in providing financial education for all, and an enhanced member experience. We believe financial peace of mind leads to a better life. And better lives lead to better communities. We call it Uncommon Courtesy. And it’s just how we do business.
