Originally chartered in 1955 by a small group of postal workers to serve employees of governments in Canyon and surrounding counties, and since we became community-chartered, we now serve all people who live, work, worship, or attend school in the following Idaho state counties: Canyon, Gem, Payette, Washington, Adams, and Owyhee.
In January 2008 our name was changed from Quinco Credit Union to Mountain Gem Credit Union to better reflect our expanded membership base. We are still the same great credit union-owned by the same folks, our members and with the same friendly staff. We changed our name to help us get the word out that we are now community chartered. We are very proud of our heritage and we remain very dedicated to the philosophy that the credit union was founded upon-people helping people.
Mountain Gem Credit Union is a member-owned financial institution whose purpose is to satisfy the financial needs of our members/owners. Unlike other financial institutions that are strictly profit-driven, our excess earnings are returned to the member/owners in the form of lower loan rates, higher savings yields, or reinvested into the credit union to provide additional products, services, and capital. Because of this cooperative philosophy, when any member saves, invests, or borrows at the credit union, everybody benefits!
