Our History

Communities Work Best When They Work Together

What is a credit union and how is it different from a bank? A credit union is a cooperative that is owned by its members, unlike other financial institutions that are focused on profits and owned by shareholders.

As a not-for-profit credit union in San Diego, Mission Fed invests our earnings directly into serving our members and community. Being member-owned means that we are focused on our members, and dedicate time and attention to their financial needs.

People Over Profits

Mission Fed is committed to putting people over profits. As a credit union member, you’ll enjoy peace of mind that you won’t find at other financial institutions because your interests are at the center of everything we do.

Mission Fed invests our earnings directly into serving our members. That’s why we can charge lower loan rates, provide higher rates on deposits and offer lower fees on debit and credit card transactions than banks.

In San Diego, For San Diego

We’re not just in San Diego. We’re part of San Diego. Our dedication to our community means we invest in programs, services and organizations that help make San Diego a great place to live, work and play.

You can sum up what we do in four words: We serve our community.

Staying True to Our Credit Union Heritage

Mission Fed holds true to the credit union heritage by providing services that are inclusive and accessible for all and by helping the community we have proudly been part of for more than 60 years.
