our story

your solid financial partner

A legacy of strength, power and courage. Our story began on April 16, 1936 – Inspired by a small handful of educators from the Battle Creek School System, the Battle Creek Teachers Association Credit Union was born. Our original field of membership was limited to teachers, principals, supervisors and superintendents of the Battle Creek School System. At the end of the first year of operation, there were 79 members, 24 borrowers and assets of $1,861.59.
