Giving Back

California Coast Credit Union takes great pride in improving lives in our community through support and participation in a myriad of causes, with a focus on youth, education and the health of people and animals.

Partnerships with Local Organizations

We greatly value and continue to expand our partnerships with local organizations that share our "people helping people" philosophy. Some of our partners are: San Diego Humane SocietyRady Children’s HospitalVietnamese American Youth AllianceHome Start and many others.

California Coast Credit Union is committed to uplifting the communities that we serve.

In addition to our long-standing support of local schools, colleges, and universities, we partner with nonprofits, community organizations and local businesses to help uplift individuals and families across San Diego and Riverside Counties.

This year, Cal Coast has partnered with the City of San Diego, community stakeholders and others to participate in events and causes in the city’s Promise Zone, to support individuals, families, schools, nonprofits, and others as part of our mission to empower underserved populations and enhance financial inclusion. Our staff volunteered at neighborhood gardens, encouraged reading among young students, assisted with health screenings for at-risk teens, helped furry friends find forever homes, and so much more.

This month, we are pleased to share that we celebrated the opening of a new Cal Coast Financial Wellness Center at the Logan Heights Community Development Corporation which will provide no-cost financial education and coaching to individuals and families in the area.

Our Vision

Our vision is to foster a culture of service and commitment to our community that our members, employees and partners are proud of. We are dedicated to continuing our legacy of service by working in the best interest of our members and the community at large for decades to come.

Cal Coast Cares Team

Our dedicated team of volunteers is at the heart of everything we do to support the communities we serve. This dedicated group of employees and staff is called our Cal Coast Cares Team. Last year alone, we volunteered a total of more than 4,000 hours of personal time at nearly 150 events across San Diego and Riverside Counties. These events included charity 5K walks/runs, packaging food at local food banks, beach & park cleanup projects and so much more. We always invite and encourage our members and everyone in the community to join our Cal Coast Cares team at these events to support our mission of giving back.

Supporting Our Schools

Cal Coast strongly supports local schools, from K-12 to community colleges and local universities. Our free Bite of Reality youth education program is a big hit with local students and teachers, and we provide free financial wellness workshops throughout the communities we serve. One of our new partnerships includes California State University, San Marcos, where we host free financial workshops throughout the year for their students and support causes and events on campus. We have a similar commitment to San Diego State UniversityUniversity of California, San Diego (UCSD, )National University and virtually all of the local community colleges.
