5-Star Compass Community Credit Union people helping people

EUREKA, CA (April 27, 2022) — BauerFinancial, the Nation’s Premier Bank and Credit Union Rating Firm, has once again awarded Compass Community Credit Union another 5-Star rating. Working together towards common goals and interests has allowed Compass to continuously earn this top rating for 48 quarters.

To earn this top rating, Compass Community Credit Union excelled under an in-depth, independent analysis of its financial condition, and it has since June 2010. That gives Compass an added distinction of “Exceptional Performance Credit Union”, a privilege that only credit unions with a minimum of 40 consecutive 5-Star ratings can claim.

“Everything is easier when you love what you do and take a personal interest in the people you do it for. That is clearly the case with Compass Community Credit Union,” commends Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “They take the credit union philosophy of ‘people helping people’ to heart. Doing so has come back around and made the credit union an overall success.”

“People helping people defines what we are all about and we’ve been doing that since 1951,” said Compass Community Credit Union CEO, Ray Litchfield. “We have assembled a team that goes above and beyond to meet the needs of our members. I believe this gives Compass the competitive advantage in serving the local community.”

BAUERFINANCIAL, Inc., Coral Gables, Florida, the nation’s leading independent bank and credit union rating and research firm, has been reporting on and analyzing the performance of U.S. banks and credit unions since 1983. No institution can pay for or opt-out of a BauerFinancial rating. Star-ratings are all available for free at
