About America’s Credit Union, a Federal Credit Union
ACU was founded in 1954 as the Fort Lewis Federal Credit Union. It was initially created to serve civilian federal employees and their families who worked at Fort Lewis (now Joint Base Lewis-McChord). Membership was later expanded to Military and eventually civilians in the region. Their original purpose, which still guides them today, was to provide a valuable alternative to commercial banks by operating as a cooperative to the benefit of their members.
