About Us

Putting members first since 1938.

    Giving your dreams flight through exceptional service and value.

    Wings was founded in 1938 by 7 airline employees.

    Our 280,000+ members span all 50 states and beyond.

    Wings Financial was originally chartered by 7 Northwest Airlines employees who recognized the value of a cooperative financial institution where members help each other succeed financially. In this cooperative spirit, Wings is a not-for-profit financial institution where members are also owners. All earnings are reinvested in the credit union in the form of higher savings yields, lower loan rates, fewer and lower fees – as well as in-person, mobile and online service options.

    Today, Wings gives flight to over 280,000 members’ dreams worldwide. While members often remark that Wings has a small community feel, we have the size and scale to offer superior pricing and service. At over $5.3 billion in assets, Wings is Minnesota’s largest credit union and ranks among the nation’s top 40 credit unions.

    Wings Core Values

    It is the people who make Wings what it is today. Our success comes from loyal members who trust us with their financial business each day, and our employees who work hard to provide each member with outstanding service.
