Cal Coast Cares Foundation

California Coast Credit Union was founded in 1929 by local educators, and the Cal Coast Cares Foundation1 has been created to continue their legacy by supporting the local education community, including teachers, students and staff.

The Cal Coast Cares Foundation was established in 2015 as a non-profit organization to give back to our community and transform lives by providing scholarship opportunities for students pursuing accredited degrees. In 2017 the Cal Coast Cares Foundation will provide over $50,000 in scholarships to deserving college students and graduating high school seniors in San Diego and Riverside counties. The Foundation has plans to also support local educators through grants.
