SINCE DAY 1

From the very start, we have maintained an unwavering commitment to you and our communities.

At Golden 1 Credit Union, we are committed to living and sharing the credit union difference throughout the Golden State. Since Day 1, our members and communities have been at the heart of everything we do. What began in 1933 grows stronger every year and we take great pride in serving those who have grown with us.

Golden 1 is an inclusive and caring partner and leader that works to better the financial well-being of all Californians to create a healthier future. We passionately support educational attainment, access to career pathways, and youth/young adult entrepreneurship.

Since Day 1

We believe in the power of education.

We believe in a healthy relationship with money.

We believe in thriving communities.

WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF EDUCATION.


We believe all our neighbors should have a chance to realize their educational dreams. We have awarded millions in college scholarships to deserving students statewide. Our grants help youth thrive academically, find meaningful and fulfilling career paths, and inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs. We conduct “The Challenge” in local high schools and colleges to motivate students to make good financial decisions. Through these dedicated efforts, we aim to close the opportunity gap and invest in California’s future leaders.

WE BELIEVE IN A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP WITH MONEY.


We believe living your best life means more than having a savings account. The powerful tools in the Financial Wellness Center provide members and communities with the knowledge to live financially healthy lives.

As California’s leading credit union, we do so much more. We award grants to organizations that help young people receive the support they need to learn, find a career, or turn their dreams of owning a business into reality. Our scholarships help cover the cost of tuition and fees so students can focus in the classroom.

WE BELIEVE IN THRIVING COMMUNITIES.


We believe in partnerships that uplift people. We are committed to driving social impact and change that creates financial access and well-being for all Californians. That’s why we partner with local communities to empower our neighbors to live their best financial lives. It’s also why offer the Community Suite at Golden 1 Center to deserving charities. We care about causes close to our members’ hearts, so we match their donations on Big Day of Giving. We help communities with food bank donations and disaster relief aid, and our employees contribute their time and money to non-profits.
