Community Events

Concern for the Community. 

Cooperatives around the world operate according to the same core principles and values.  Your credit union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative and we follow those same principles for the greater good of our community, credit union, and members.


Children’s Miracle Network

South Bay Credit Union & CU4KIDS:Children's Miracle Networ Hospitals

South Bay Credit Union has been working through CU4KIDS for benefit of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Each year we participate in a number of fundraisers and 100% of every dollar collected goes back into the CMN Hospital which serves our community, the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Since 1996, the Credit Unions for Kids program has generated over $80 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals; $9 million in 2018 alone! But the need continues to grow.

Help us to change a child’s life. Every single penny helps! One child’s cancer treatment costs $75,000 on average. Join us in helping the children of South Bay. Together, we can change a child’s life.

Cheer for Children

South Bay Credit Union has teamed up with Cheer for Children, a non-profit, all-volunteer organization in South Bay.  Each year we set out collection bins and ask our members to assist us bringing more cheer to local families that are in need.  This year, the Cheer for Children with list includes: field trips for the physically challenged in South Bay, purchase of special equipment for handicapped school children, purchase of Harbor UCLA Hospital Child Life Dept. high chairs, inexpensive remote control cars and batteries for orthopedically handicapped children, amusement park & sports event tickets for families of acutely ill children, and educational & Disney DVD’s.

Back-to-School Supply Drive

Each year we sponsor a back-to-school supply drive.  Items collected are distributed to various partners in the South Bay.

Community Outreach

We love that we are a part of the South Bay community…and can you believe we’ve been here since 1953?   We’ve seen a lot of kids grow up!

As a local credit union, we believe it’s our responsibility to give back to the community that has been so kind to us.
