Community: “A feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests and goals.” For over 89 years, we’ve viewed ourselves as a true community partner in this wonderful place we all call home. In fact, we refer to ourselves as “your community credit union,” and it’s an idea so important to us that we include it as part of our name.
In this section, we share with you some of our recent participation in and support of community non-profits.
Empowering staff and fighting financial exploitation.
AARP’s BankSafe training combines industry knowledge and experience with a state-of-the-art online learning experience. AARP worked with more than 2,000 financial industry professionals to develop the training platform’s content and interactive scenarios. The platform is one of the few designed specifically for frontline staff, supervisors, financial advisors and compliance officers.
Users learn how to identify potential financial exploitation and take the right actions to stop it. In fact, researchers from the Virginia Tech Center for Gerontology found that employees trained with AARP BankSafe were able to save an average of 16 times more money per employee from financial exploitation than employees trained with other methods.
As part of the BankSafe program, financial organizations can apply to have AARP verify that at least 80% of their frontline staff successfully passed the BankSafe training and confirm that they have a financial-exploitation escalation reporting policy. Qualifying banks, credit unions and investment firms in good standing can apply to receive a seal from AARP, good for one year, recognizing their commitment to fighting exploitation.
We celebrate the individuals who make our community feel like home. We hope they inspire you as much as they’ve inspired us—and bring you closer to discovering your own path to a difference.

Own your journey is way more than just our tagline—it’s the guiding philosophy we use in adding value to our members’ experience with Glacier Hills. And you can imagine we stay pretty busy in this regard. So, we’ll be using this section to share new product features, programs and service enhancements.
On-Demand Financial Knowledge
We’ve always believed that providing our members with insightful and easily understandable financial information is the very best way to empower them to accomplish the goals they establish along their personal financial journey. And, it’s even better when that information is available 24/7.
Too often, local organizations who have a mission to help their local communities succeed, lack the financial resources and supplies they need to fully perform the miracles they aim for. That's why we've made it our mission to support them through various donations, fundraising drives, and outreach and awareness events. These are the organizations we've been proud to help raise money for or donated to.
