Established in 1934 as the Kimberly Credit Union, Capital Credit Union is currently Wisconsin’s 11th largest credit union, serving more than 101,000 members and holding assets in excess of $1.2 billion. The original FOM included the employees of Kimberly-Clark, with its office located in the Kimberly-Clark Mill. The Credit Union adopted a community charter in 1970, but the name wasn’t changed to Capital Credit Union until 1996. Three years ago, CCU merged with Pioneer Credit Union (the oldest credit union in the Green Bay area), “doing the right thing for our members.”
