Red Rocks Credit Union believes in inspiring its members to embrace living with intention. We’re your partner on life’s journey, helping you achieve your goals and dreams by providing you sound financial advice, affordable rates and great local service.
Strong relationships are the foundation of everything we do here. Thirty-six years ago, employees of Martin Marietta (now Lockheed Martin) pooled their money as a way to serve one another. They trusted each other and wanted to ensure their futures were stronger by coming together. Red Rocks Credit Union was originally chartered in 1979 and officially opened its doors on Valentine’s Day 1980. Maybe that’s one of the reasons we have so much love for our members and our community!
Today, that same principle of serving a small, local community through a concern for one another continues to drive everything we do here. We’ve added a few principles like convenience, transparency, and simplicity, but it’s all founded in one idea: care and concern for our community.
Our mission is to encourage, enable and underwrite the hopes, dreams and aspirations of our members to have maximum impact.
Our vision is a better and more inspiring world where people live out their hopes, dreams and aspirations; where they have a sense of purpose and live their lives intentionally; where they inspire others, have a sense of belonging and a feeling of peace.

As a credit union, our ultimate accountability is to our employees, our families, and our community, not shareholders or profits. Because of this, we strive to be good stewards of your money by providing the care, responsiveness, and ease of business we’d deliver to our own family. Our local member-owners control 100% of every aspect of what we do. They elect our board of directors, govern, oversee, and direct profits into lower loan rates, higher deposit rates, and lower fees for members.
We believe in transparency through authentic and honest communication. Our checking accounts are called “checking.” Our savings accounts are called “savings.” It’s pragmatic and simple – the way it should be. When you have a question, we make it easy for you to speak to a real person – with real solutions.
We’re always looking for ways to make your busy life easier. That’s why we’ve structured our business to come to you, on your time, electronically. When you close loans, you do it from the convenience of wherever you are, not where it’s most convenient for us. Other financial institutions thrive by making you need them but we thrive by serving you.
While credit unions and banks have many of the same product offerings, there is a fundamental difference between these two types of financial institutions. Credit unions are owned by their members and governed by an elected member-volunteer board of directors. Banks are corporations run by their shareholders who demand profitability at a high cost to customers. Because of this fundamental difference, credit unions are able to pass on better rates and higher returns — maximizing the economic benefit to the members who make up the credit union.
Your money is safe with us. The National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) provides coverage for up to $250,000 for credit union member deposits backed by the U.S. government and is managed by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA).
