About Stanford FCU

We’re a full service financial institution owned and operated by nearly 50,000 members of the Stanford Community, including Stanford University, Stanford Hospital & Clinics, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.

As a Stanford FCU member owner, you’re in charge. That means you’ll enjoy lower interest rates on loans, higher rates on savings and investment accounts, and low or no-fee accounts!

Who is Stanford Federal Credit Union?

In 1959, a group of Stanford employees created the Stanford Federal Credit Union to serve their banking needs. Today, we’ve grown to nearly, 50,000 members and over $1.5 billion in assets, and the quality of our expansive line of financial products and services is unmatched in the industry. We serve the faculty, staff, students, Stanford Alumni Association members, and volunteers of Stanford University (naturally), Stanford Hospital & Clinics, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory…but we also serve over a 100 local companies and their employees, including Google, Genentech, Facebook, SAP and VMware. That’s a lot of companies, true, but we’ve still got room for you!

To top it off, Stanford FCU was the first financial institution to offer online banking, and it continues to be committed to offering innovative technology to its members. The credit union is also focused on enhancing financial lives through education and counseling. Our truly visionary leadership continues to be provided by our member-elected Board of Directors, who selflessly serves without pay to help oversee the credit union’s operations.
