At Central Willamette Credit Union, we recognize the unique financial needs of the burgeoning cannabis industry in Oregon. We're excited to introduce dedicated banking services tailored specifically for cannabis-related businesses. Our commitment is to provide reliable, compliant, and secure financial solutions to help your business flourish in this dynamic sector.

Account Deposits:

  • Check Deposits: Check deposits are not accepted via drop safes. Check deposits may be made
    using the night-drop box, mobile deposit, ATM or in-person at each of our branch locations.
    Remote deposit capture is also available to our business clients, please contact CW Business
    Services for more information.
  • Cash Deposits: Cash deposits to Cannabis Related Accounts will not be accepted by credit union staff. Cash deposits must be prepared appropriately and deposited using a drop safe at one of the specified Central Willamette locations.
  • Coin Deposits: Coin not to exceed $5.00 may be included with an appropriately prepared
    deposit using the drop safe. Rolled coin may be presented in a branch location for deposit. Coin
    counters are available at many of our branch locations, contact for availability.
  • Adjustments: All deposits are final. The Credit Union will not be liable if: through no fault of the
    Credit Union, your deposit does not contain enough currency to make the transaction as
    described. Please ensure you are securing deposits and preparing them properly. The Credit
    Union will work closely with the processor to review any deposit adjustments made.
  • Counterfeit​ Currency: In the event your deposit contains currency determined to be
    counterfeit, it will be adjusted from your deposit, forwarded to appropriate law enforcement,
    and you will be notified. In the event law enforcement determines the currency was in fact valid, your account will be credited.

Preparing Drop Safe Deposits:

Improperly prepared safe drop deposits may delay processing time and the availability of
funds. Please follow the instructions outlined below to ensure timely processing.

  • Deposit Bags: Deposits must be contained in a sealed, tamper-resistant bag with a barcode. We
    recommend that members record the applicable barcode number with their deposit records.
    Please ensure the business name is printed on the outside of the bag.
  • Deposit Slips: A deposit slip must be included with each deposit. Deposits must be legible and
    clearly state the total amount of the deposit, a breakdown of denominations included, the
    business name and your CW account number.
    If you have multiple individuals preparing
    deposits, we recommend you record (initial, etc) who is preparing the deposit slip. If you do not
    have preprinted deposit slips available, use our generic form.
  • Packaging Cash: Please package cash for deposit so that it is clean, flat, and organized by
    denomination. Do not roll, wad, or fold cash. Cash does not need to be “strapped” or contain a
    specific number of bills. If using bands, clips, etc to organize cash, remove them before placing in
    the bag or ensure that they are easily removed during process. Cash must be clean and dry, no
    moisture, mold or mildew will be accepted.
  • Packaging Coin: If including coin (less than $5.00) in a drop safe deposit, please place coin in a
    plastic sandwich bag, envelope, etc rather than loose with the cash.
