Champion Credit Union was founded in Canton, NC in 1932. We are the oldest public credit union in North Carolina. The credit union is a not-for-profit banking co-op owned by members, not by Wall Street. For that reason, we have a long-standing history of providing financial benefits that banks can’t even imagine. The credit union has grown to now serving over 20,000 members in Buncombe, Haywood, Jackson, Henderson, Madison, Swain, Graham, Macon, and Transylvania Counties of NC.
