Established in 1938 by 12 employees of Potlatch Forests, Inc., (a leader in sustainable forestry), P1FCU was originally known as Potlatch No 1 Federal Credit Union. While many fledgling credit unions began in less than impressive surroundings, P1FCU didn’t even have a fixed location: the first transactions were conducted out of the trunk of a car, with the funds secured in a cigar box.

Membership grew to 353 in the first year of operation; 84 years later, P1FCU has grown to become Idaho’s second largest credit union, with nearly 119,000 members and assets in excess of $2 billion.

According to Wikipedia,

A potlatch is a gift-giving feast practiced by indigenous peoples
of the Pacific Northwest Coast of Canada and the United States.
