Established in 1940, SAFE Credit Union has a long history of providing its members best solutions, exceptional experiences, and professional experts. SAFE has delivered on its commitment to improve members’ financial well-being and, in doing so, has experienced remarkable growth over the past 75 years. From a modest beginning as a small credit union serving civilian and enlisted Air Force personnel, SAFE has grown into a financial leader serving individuals and businesses throughout the Greater Sacramento region.
SAFE is proud of its deep and varied contributions to the community, as well as its environmentally friendly initiatives. For example, SAFE supports the Sacramento Metro Chamber’s efforts to help small businesses grow and was honored to be named the 2015 Sacramento District SBA Lender of the Year. Additionally, as a certified Sacramento Area Sustainable Business, SAFE is committed to efficiency, energy and water conservation, as well as paper and waste reduction.
Separately, SAFE’s streamlined processes and on-the-go solutions make everyday banking easier for both consumers and businesses. The credit union provides financial resources beyond everyday banking, helping members plan for the future, achieve financial peace of mind, and enjoy life. For instance, SAFE reaches out to regional employers with a package of financial wellness resources called SAFE@Work. This unique program offers local employers solutions to help ensure their employees’ financial well-being while improving retention, productivity, and loyalty.
Finally, the staff, executives, and volunteer board of directors at SAFE take great joy in serving the community through a variety of philanthropic efforts. The SAFE Volunteer! program ensures that SAFE employees have the time they need to actively improve the lives of the members they serve and the communities they share.
