BECU is a credit union originally established to serve employees of The Boeing Company. BECU was founded as Fellowship Credit Union in 1935 by 18 Boeing employees, and was named Boeing Employees' Credit Union for much of its history. Based in Tukwila, Washington, BECU has over $12 billion in assets and over 1,000,000 members[2], making it the largest credit union in Washington and fourth largest in the United States.[3][4] Benson Porter is the current President and CEO.[5]

BECU has over 45 locations throughout the Puget Sound region and two locations in Spokane.[6] Originally, BECU was only open to past and present employees of the Boeing Company, its subsidiaries or affiliates, BECU itself, and the Museum of Flight. In 2002, membership was opened to all Washington state residents and their family members.[7]

On November 2, 2017, BECU changed its logo, replacing the 'cursive E' logo that had been used by the company since the late 1980s, with a sans-serifed logo.[8]
