The County Federal Story
Santa Clara County Federal Credit Union – County Federal for short – was founded on May 8, 1950 by seven county employees with a vision and $103. Our Credit Union was originally chartered in the state of California under the name Santa Clara County Employees Credit Union. They each volunteered their time to foster a common dream. Now, County Federal not only serves Santa Clara County employees but San Benito County, many cities within Santa Clara County, Santa Clara County Office of Education, Valley Medical Center and many other companies affiliated with the county.
Through our continued support of this family of organizations, County Federal has been able to develop various outreach programs to benefit those in our community. We have helped many young members reach their educational goals through our scholarship program. We also dedicate time and money to various non-profit organizations within our field of membership. At County Federal, you’ll know right away that you aren’t just a customer, you’re a member. And that means preferred rates, a comprehensive line of products and services — and the kind of personal service that builds Relationships for Life.
