When you choose Tech CU, you’re joining a credit union that was founded in Silicon Valley by a group of entrepreneurs and future high tech leaders. The uniqueness of this valley is in our DNA — and we've got the history to prove it.

More than fifty years ago, a group of forward-thinking employees at Fairchild Semiconductor (a pioneer in technology innovation) who knew there was a better way to bank, formed Tech CU — a credit union solely dedicated to the financial success of its members — and owned by the people it serves.
We're a not-for-profit organization operated for the benefit of our members. Instead of maximizing profits to pay company stockholders, we invest our resources to deliver lower rates, outstanding service, and member benefits. It’s like a bank you own — with the privileges of membership.
Whether you call, click, or visit a branch, you’ll receive:
