SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union

SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union

They live their business philosophy of “People Helping People.”

Since its founding in 1934, SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union (formerly Orange County Teachers Federal Credit Union) has pursued one goal: improving the financial lives of their members, both teachers and school employees.

Currently $8.4 billion strong with 34 branches in four counties of Southern California, SchoolsFirst has more than 470,000 members who are benefiting from their products and services. In recognition of their achievements, Cal State Fullerton honored SchoolsFirst with the Orange County Titan Award in 2004.

SchoolsFirst has a long relationship with Cal State Fullerton. Since 1994, the credit union has been supporting the university with gifts benefiting faculty, students and alumni. These include the Guardian Scholars program for former foster youth, the President’s Scholars program for merit scholars, the College of Education Alumni Chapter, the Front & Center community outreach events and other important programs and initiatives.

In 2009, SchoolsFirst made a generous six-figure pledge to the College of Education’s new Center for Creativity and Critical Thinking in Schools – established to better prepare K-12 students for a changing world and the 21st Century workplace.

“We are a proud sponsor of Cal State Fullerton and their dedicated faculty and staff who are helping to build the future and advancing education in California today,” said Rudy Hanley, president and CEO of SchoolsFirst FCU. “Our partnership is a natural fit because of our mutual mission to support education and educators.”
