Bringing financial services to
Franklin Boulevard in Sacramento

Sacramento, CA branch

On October 23, the doors opened at our long-awaited new branch in south Sacramento, California! The branch brings our full suite of offerings—loans, savings accounts, credit-building help, ATM access and more—to a neighborhood that faces a shortage of options for fair financial services. We’re excited to deepen our community connections in the vibrant Franklin District, and ready to serve more members as they achieve their financial goals, from starting savings habits to building credit to becoming homeowners. Come visit us at 3924 Franklin Boulevard!

Join us for our Annual Meeting celebration!

Celebrate with us at our Modesto branch on Wednesday, November 8, from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m., when we host our annual meeting. You can learn how your deposits are helping us create stronger communities, families and individuals by providing fair financial access to everyone. We would enjoy having you visit our new branch while you connect with friends, staff and other members.

See details and RSVP here.

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!

75 years of credit union recognition

The 75th anniversary of International Credit Union Day was October 19, 2023. ICU Day is a celebration of the credit union movement, a simple idea of people working together to create a better standard of living by combining their savings to make loans for friends and neighbors.  

In honor of ICU Day, we take this opportunity to thank all our members. Your trust in us to safeguard your savings allows us to serve our mission of creating and protecting ownership and economic opportunity for all.
