About Us

We Put You First

Join SF Fire Credit Union, and come home to where the Bay Area banks.

Founded in 1951 by firefighters for firefighters, we are a credit union dedicated to building financial success in our community.

Today, we continue to serve firefighters while also extending membership to those who live, work, or attend school in San Francisco, San Mateo, or Marin counties. Just as firefighters protect the physical security of the community, our institution protects its financial security. Unlike banks, we are a not-for-profit cooperative owned and operated by members like you. We are defined by our commitment to member-first service, community engagement, and innovation.

A legacy of service

You Are in Charge

As a not-for-profit cooperative financial institution, we are owned and operated by members like you. Can your bank say the same?

Keep Your Money Local

Our profits go back to our community and our members, not Wall Street. We have deep roots in the Bay Area and are proud to be your local credit union. We live here too, so it’s our community as well.

From the Firehouse to Your House

We are defined by our legacy of supporting San Francisco firefighters. We give back to the fire community through fundraising, special rates, and discounted loans. When you support us, you support them.

We Live Our Values

We believe in ethical banking practices. We evaluate all financial decisions based on how they fit our values and those of our member community.

SF Fire Credit Union is proud to support the community that supports us.

We actively support both the San Francisco Firefighters Cancer Prevention Foundation and the San Francisco Firefighters Toy Program. These organizations protect and enrich the lives of the people in our community, just like the firefighters who run them.

Help us give back to those who give all.
