California Coast Credit Union is the longest-serving financial institution based in San Diego County. It was established in 1929 by San Diego teachers and now serves close to 200,000 members. The credit union is a non-profit organization and provides no-cost financial education for adults as well as youth.
The longstanding institution chose to expand to Menifee based on the city’s growing, diverse, and vibrant community. California Coast Credit Union is a values-based organization known for supporting the communities they serve, and after seeing the Menifee community’s support for its
residents and businesses firsthand, they confirmed the city was the perfect fit for their organization.
California Coast Credit Union and their associates’ passion to support the community is evident through their steadfast presence in Menifee clubs, events, and everything in between. Dedicated to the betterment of future generations, the credit union donates basketball scholarships to Paloma Valley High School, their associates have coached a Menifee youth basketball league, and helped run a concession stand for a fundraising event at Hans Christensen Middle School. The non-profit organization also regularly promotes the importance of health. They participated in Santa Rosa Academy’s 5K run, provided space outside their office to host the Menifee Fresh Food Cooking Event, and their team has participated in community clean-up events.
“California Coast Credit Union has made its presence in Menifee known through an unwavering commitment to the city’s youth, health, environment, and financial education,” said District 1 Councilmember Bob Karwin. “Thank you, California Credit Union, for investing in Menifee’s growing community and for always going above the call of business.”
