Celebrating 87 years of service


About Us

Building Sponsored by the Ewa Plantation Company, Ewa Federal Credit Union was chartered on February 5, 1937 by an agency of the Federal government, then the Farm Credit Administration.  With $80 in shares, sixteen charter members held their first organization meeting in the sugar plantation's Administration building.  Membership drives were held in the various villages which produced 308 members and $10,000 in assets that very first year.

The credit union played an integral part in the daily lives of the plantation workers, providing a convenient means to EWA Plantation save and borrow money. For those who grew up in the sugar plantation era, it was an idyllic, carefree and almost surreal experience which is still fondly remembered by all.

StatueSadly, in 1970, after eighty years of sugar cane production, Ewa Plantation Company closed its doors, merging with another sugar company, and sponsorship of the credit union was turned over to Oahu Sugar Company. Ewa FCU continued to serve the plantation employees and their families until Oahu Sugar’s shutdown in 1995. The credit union’s Field of Membership was formally amended in 1996 to incorporate the Ewa Villages Community Association comprised of the residents living within distinct boundary lines surrounding the Ewa Villages. On February 23, 2015, Ewa FCU converted into a community charter to serve the Ewa Neighborhood Board No.23, encompassing both the Ewa Villages and Ewa Beach communities.


Since October 1978 and till today, Ewa FCU is located in the USPS Ewa Station building on Renton Road, though now office space is leased through the City and County of Honolulu. As one of the few remaining institutions in service since the sugar plantation days of old, we cherish our historic roots and are proud of the achievements and accomplishments we have attained through the years. We will continue to serve the Ewa Neighborhood Board No.23 and our loyal members with the same dedication, perseverance and cooperative spirit instilled in us by those early plantation pioneers.
