Giving Back

We're passionate about doing good in our community. Giving back is at the heart of what we do.

Cal Coast Cares Volunteer Team

California Coast Credit Union believes in giving back to the people we serve. It’s just one of the ways we put our values into action. In addition to being deeply involved with local charities and causes, we also help provide educational opportunities through our foundation and are committed to making financial education available to our members and the community.

Cal Coast Cares Foundation

The Cal Coast Cares Foundation is a non-profit foundation created by California Coast Credit Union to support education throughout San Diego and Riverside Counties. The foundation is supported by California Coast Credit Union and also fundraises to provide scholarship opportunities for students pursuing accredited college degrees as well as grants for local educators.
