On September 4, 1959, seven civilian workers at the Norfolk Naval Air Station each invested $5 and incorporated NorVA N.A.S. Federal Credit Union. From its earliest days, members included both civilian and military personnel, along with their families. The charter also extended to employees of the credit union and their families. The main purpose of this new credit union that eventually evolved into the modern Chartway brand was to provide low-cost loans and serve as a convenient place for members to save and grow their finances.
Chartway has continued to grow and prosper by attracting new members and by expanding its presence in Utah and Texas. Now serving more than 190,000 members, Chartway’s long-celebrated “People First” commitment continues to help its communities thrive financially.
Knowing that no success is complete without giving back to the communities in which we serve, we have built an award-winning charitable arm, the Chartway Promise Foundation. Working together, we have raised over $13 million in funding to provide life-changing experiences for children facing medical hardship or illness. Bringing them joy, hope, and smiles during difficult times is just one more way we are able to open new doors and shine light in our communities. Want to help us on our mission?
You can count on Chartway for kindness, empathy, and a solutions-oriented spirit. At Chartway, you matter.
We promise to continue building on year after year of service as we move forward, thriving together.
