Our History

Impact Credit Union was born from a very simple idea: People Helping People

From the beginning as Davidson Clyde Federal Credit Union in 1937, to our position today as one of the largest credit unions in our field of membership, Impact Credit Union is steadfast in our commitment to our Members.

Your membership has value! The more you participate in your credit union, the more value you will get from your membership. Here at the credit union, you're not just a member, you're an owner!

Our Mission
The Mission of Impact Credit Union is to effectively and efficiently provide our members with quality financial services that exceed member expectations while maintaining a progressive and sound financial institution.

A Timeline of Impact Credit Union History
The credit Union started in 1937 as Davidson Clyde Federal Credit Union, in 1945, it became the Clyde Porcelain Federal Credit Union. January of 1956 the name was changed to Whirlpool Clyde Division Federal Credit Union. Finally, in January of 1960, a new credit union member owned office building (one of the first in Ohio) was opened at 930 W. McPherson Hwy, Clyde, Ohio and the organization became known as Whirlpool Employees Federal Credit Union.

Expanding our Credit Union
In January of 1971, a merger was completed with an infant Findlay Division-Whirlpool Federal Credit Union and the Clyde-Findlay Whirlpool Employees Federal Credit Union was created. This led to a branch office being constructed 1973 in Findlay, Ohio.

With the acceptance of other “select groups” in to our field of membership in 1986, the Clyde-Findlay Employees Federal Credit Union was established.

Changing of our Charter
On May 26, 1994, we changed our charter from federal to state. This charter allowed us to offer additional services to our Membership and we became the Clyde-Findlay Area Credit Union. Our new charter also allows us to expand our field of Membership to include individuals who live, work, worship or attend school in Sandusky, Seneca or Hancock Counties in Ohio.

Expanding in the 21st Century
Evolution and growth are vital to an organization’s sustainability in today’s world. In order to compete and thrive, while maximizing market share, it is important to have a name that characterizes who we are. In 2014 this began Impact Credit Union, who we are today. Moving forward we feel Impact Credit Union truly captures what we are about – passionate and member-focused. This name exemplifies the personal touch we extend to our membership and the impact we have every day in helping with financial decisions which impact their lives.

As we continue to seek growth opportunities, our first priority is to our Credit Union Members, staff and Community.
