History

Jordan Credit Union was organized on December 9, 1950 with 17 members and no assets. On January 16, 1951 the credit union received its charter and became a financial institution operating collectively for Jordan School District employees and their families.

In May 1958, Jordan Credit Union moved out of a Jordan School District employee's house and into a previously owned Jordan School District building. By 1968, the credit union relocated its main office across the street from the Jordan School District administration office in Sandy, Utah and continues to operate as the main office for Jordan Credit Union.

By November 2000, Jordan Credit Union had expanded its field of membership to include anyone who resides in Salt Lake County, Utah. Today, although Jordan Credit Union operates under different guidelines, the credit union maintains its roots, which is still noticeable from its office locations and school participation.

In 2009, Jordan Credit Union's original field of membership, Jordan School District, was split into two separate districts as a result of the November 2007 referendum vote by the residents of Alta, Cottonwood Heights, Draper, Midvale and Sandy. Canyons School District was born. With the introduction of a new school district, Jordan Credit Union opened a new location inside the relocated auxiliary services building of Jordan School District. Currently, the Jordan Credit Union location inside the Jordan School District auxiliary services building is only accessible to Jordan School District employees.

Today, Jordan Credit Union continues to serve the financial needs of Canyons and Jordan School District by having convenient locations surrounding administration offices and schools. Moreover, Canyons and Jordan School District employees and their immediate family account for the largest portion of membership for Jordan Credit Union.
