Our Story

Our Story Begins in 1953

Back in December 1953, a dedicated group of Wyoming Highway Department employees decided to change the financial landscape. With just $35 in assets and an unwavering belief in the Credit Union philosophy of "People Helping People," WyHy Federal Credit Union was born. From our modest beginnings in a small state office in downtown Cheyenne, we've embarked on an incredible journey of growth and service.

Today's WyHy: A Financial Powerhouse

Fast forward to today, and WyHy is not just a force to be reckoned with but a beacon of financial empowerment across the vast expanse of Wyoming.
