Strategic Partnerships

Stanford FCU has long-standing partnerships throughout our community to help improve financial lives. We don’t just give back to our members, we give back to our community. Although we are also a non-profit, our financial strength enables us to help others. Our strategic partners are also motivated to give back—and we collaborate on a variety of projects. Below are just a few of our many partners.

Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health

Lucile Packard Foundation is the sole fundraising entity for Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford and the child health programs at Stanford University School of Medicine. Stanford FCU donates approximately $40,000 per year to the Foundation, and contributed generously to the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital expansion. Stanford FCU also donates over $10,000 each year through our Kid’s Win program on behalf of our members.

Palo Alto Recreation Foundation

Stanford FCU donates $30,000 per year to the Palo Alto Recreation Foundation to help support the important work they do to support schools, health and wellness in the community. We also sponsor a number of fundraising events throughout the year—look for us at the Palo Alto Moonlight Run and Walk, the Palo Alto May Fete Children’s Parade, and other local events.

Stanford Alumni Association

Stanford FCU is a long-time partner of the Stanford Alumni Association (SAA). We are their official credit card partner, and our partnership results in hundreds of thousands of dollars each year for Stanford alumni and students. We have special offers for Stanford alumni, and sponsor quarterly financial education seminars on site. You’ll also see us at special events like Reunion Homecoming.

Stanford Athletics®

We’re huge Cardinal fans, so we love our partnership with Stanford Athletics! You’ll find us at every football home game, and lots of other sporting events. Our sponsorship dollars provide scholarships and other support for Stanford Athletics. Every year we hire athlete interns for the summer, and we’re the main sponsor for five games every year: Football, men’s and women’s basketball, women’s volleyball, and men’s baseball.

Stanford University

Our partnership with Stanford University dates back to 1959, when a group of Stanford employees created Stanford Federal Credit Union. Today, we have partnerships with dozens of departments like Residential & Dining Enterprises (R&DE); Student Affairs groups like Bechtel International Center and the Diversity and First-Gen Office. Stanford FCU provides sponsorship dollars, on-site support, and financial education.

Mind Over Money

Mind Over Money is the financial literacy branch of Student Financial Services under Stanford’s Student Affairs. Stanford FCU shares Mind Over Money’s mission to help students make informed financial decisions at Stanford and in their careers beyond graduation. We provide sponsorship dollars, marketing support, and financial counseling, as well as partnering with Mind Over Money to provide student financial education across campus.
