Unison Credit Union was founded in 1932 as Thilmany Credit Union; established to serve Thilmany Mill’s employees and their families. At that time, the credit union, operating out of a small room in the mill, was strictly run by volunteer employees of the mill. The credit union provided Thilmany employees a place to save and borrow at a time when the nation’s financial confidence was at an all-time low. (image courtesy Thilmany Papers)
In 1975 we changed our name to Kaukauna Credit Union and grew from offering only savings and loans to a full service financial institution. Our field of membership was expanded to include residents of the City of Kaukauna.
As we continued to grow, our field of membership changed over the years to include those living or working in Outagamie, Calumet, Brown and Manitowoc Counties and the cities and townships of Neenah and Menasha in Winnebago County. We currently have five locations in Kaukauna, Little Chute, Wrightstown and De Pere; as well as a student branches in both Kaukauna High School.
In order to welcome all members under one banner, Kaukauna Credit Union became Unison Credit Union in 2002. We continue to keep alive the dream held by our founders and, although we have grown over the years, serving members is still our first priority.
