It all started in a shoebox. Starting in 1953, Gesa Credit Union has grown from a part-time office to the second largest credit union in Washington state. Serving over 260,000 members around the world, Gesa has a rich history of providing financial services to Washington state.

Since 1996, when Gesa became a community-chartered credit union and opened its membership range to everyone in Washington, the credit union experienced explosive growth.

Gesa has grown to twenty-seven locations throughout the state but will always maintain a strong commitment to its roots.
