    Fast Facts

    Tech CU Highlights

    • More than $4 billion in assets, making it one of the twenty largest credit unions in California
    • More than 130,000 members
    • Founded on May 27, 1960
    • Since 2017, S&P Global Market Intelligence has named Tech CU as one of the top three best-performing credit unions with assets of $500 million or more in California and one of the top 20 nationally.

    Brief History

    We were founded on May 27, 1960, by a group of forward-thinking employees at Fairchild Semiconductor (the credit union was initially called Fairchild Semiconductor Federal Credit Union). By 1970, we had 6,320 members and $3.5 million in assets. The 1980s were a decade of great expansion in Silicon Valley and pivotal to our growth. We changed our name to “Technology Federal Credit Union” and opened our field of membership to employees of tech companies — growing assets to $50 million.

    In 1996, we were among the first financial institutions in the country to have a web page. We again changed our name to “Technology Credit Union (Tech CU)” and began offering a unique “Anytime: Anywhere” delivery system allowing members to access their account information from home — via telephone or online.

    Today, we are among the top 1 percent of the nation’s largest credit unions with 10 full-service branches throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and more than $3.5 billion in assets. We serve more than 130,000 members — including employees of such companies as Tesla, eBay, Applied Materials, Nvidia and Facebook. Search TechCU@Work Employers.

    We consistently achieve high marks for our customer satisfaction and maintain a 5-star rating from Bauer Financial, the nation’s largest independent rating service for financial institutions. With innovative products and services, mobile and online banking, 65,000+ fee-free ATMs worldwide, and convenient branch access to our financial experts, we are a credit union who has our members' best interests at heart.

    Tech CU Logos

    Have you ever wondered about our logo — what it is and how it was chosen? Some popular guesses are that it’s a gear or a pinwheel. But actually, it’s neither. It’s even received a couple of facelifts during our 50+ years in Silicon Valley. So, what is it?

    We were founded in 1960 by a group of employees from Fairchild Camera and Instrument Corp (today’s Fairchild Semiconductor). Our logo represents the most important part of a camera — the aperture.

    An aperture is the opening that controls the amount of light that passes through a lens. It’s what brings about the clarity and sharpness of a photograph — enabling a photographer to achieve the best possible results. Our founders chose this to symbolize their hopes and vision for a new credit union.

    Just as the aperture adjusts to changing light to achieve the best possible results, if you’re open to possibilities and guidance, Tech CU will help you pursue your vision of financial success.
