Our Commitment to Community

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” - Winston Churchill

Our long banking history

In 1955, we became federally chartered as “DMAFB Federal Credit Union” to serve the personnel at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base (DMAFB) in Tucson.  In 2006, our Board of Directors sought approval and proposed to expand our field of membership. The proposal passed, and the credit union converted from a federal to a state charter.  Today, we serve more than 115,000 members.  LEARN MORE »

“Business, that’s easily defined – it’s other people’s money.” – Peter Drucker

We strive to find new ways to deliver our products & services.  As the economy improves, we’re prepared for a return to a robust market. We hired additional skilled mortgage personnel and streamlined processes to make your home buying or refinancing a positive experience. When it comes to auto loans, we remain the top lender in southern AZ.

We’re here to help our members grow their money with competitive savings rates, and now lead in the IRA money market. We’ve also grown our Business Banking team to meet the needs of our business members.

Focused on the premise that we’re responsible for “other people’s money,” we’ll remain steadfast to our mission, “People helping people achieve their financial goals… our #1 priority!”
