More than 100,000 members
Beyond the numbers, we invite all the members of our credit union and our communities to find out what makes our focus here at Fox Communities Credit Union so special.
Over 80 years ago, this credit union began in the Combined Locks Paper Mill, as several workers decided they wanted to help others. They pooled funds together, lent money to those in need, and tracked it all using pencil and paper. We continue to live by this simple but fulfilling mission of people helping people. This is what the credit union philosophy is built on. We have grown over the years, from a small team of mill workers coming together for a common need, to more than 100,000 members with over 22 locations spanning the Fox Cities, Green Bay, Lakeshore, and surrounding areas.
All of us at Fox want to thank you for helping us continue our legacy of service and bringing people together to enrich our members and the communities we serve.
5 Made It Happen
In 1937, a group of 15 employees at the Combined Locks Paper Mill each deposited $5 to start what would come to be known as Fox Communities Credit Union.
T HE BEGINNING...
So Many Shiny Shovels
Since our first groundbreaking in 1979, we’ve used dozens of “golden shovels” to commemorate the beginnings of branch offices throughout the Fox Valley and beyond.
Greg Hilbert was hired in 1980, as just our fourth employee, at the Combined Locks Credit Union. From there, he went on to lead the credit union through growth and expansion.
HAPPEN New Partnerships Fox has partnered with 17 credit unions over the last 40 years. Their names changed to Fox, and their staff and members became family.

Since 2016, Fox has brought thousands of people together for Bike to the Beat, a chance to cruise a family-friendly bicycle tour, jam to live rest stop concerts, sip local brews, and enjoy snacks from local restaurant vendors. Riders can also enjoy a party at the end of the course. All the cyclistsâ€™ registration fees are given to the Fox Cares Foundation to support area non-profit organizations aligned with the Foundationâ€™s mission of fighting hunger and homelessness, and supporting the arts.
