    Best Credit Union

    We have been voted the Voted Yolo County’s Best Credit Union since 2000, and we’re proud to continuously hold that title every year. It’s an honor to be voted the best and one of the reasons our community knows they can trust us for all their financial needs. Check out our Number 2-1 in 21 blog to read more about how grateful we are to our community for this honor.

    History

    Yolo Federal was established in 1954 by a group of sheriff officers who got together to help pitch in and purchase the equipment needed for their colleagues. We have grown from a single branch serving a collective of people to the only financial institution exclusively serving Yolo County, with a branch in every major city in the county. Though we still follow our traditional values in providing local service, local doesn’t mean limited, and it’s safe to say we’re no longer that little credit union down the street. Check out our Discover Yolo Federal page to learn more.

    Community Involvement

    Our commitment is to our community. Every year, we average $70,000 in donations and 1,200 volunteer hours to local non-profits and organizations in our community. Learn more about our community involvement here.

    Our Leaders

    It takes a strong team of leaders to make effective business decisions so an organization can thrive. Yolo Federal is lucky to have just that. Get to know the individuals that make up our leadership team.

  • We Bring Our A-Game

    We live by 5 A-words at Yolo Federal: Accountable, Adaptable, Ambitious, Authentic, and Awesome. Check out this video by our Executive Team to learn more about how we use these A-words in our everyday culture.

  • Fostering a Diverse Workplace

    We firmly believe that having a diverse workforce fosters better ideas, is more creative, makes better decisions, gains competitive advantage, and overall strengthens our position in the financial industry. That’s why we have a committee dedicated to recruiting talented individuals that bolster an inclusive workplace. The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee, founded in 2020, meets to review the current environment, evaluate employee perspectives and opinions, and search for solutions to any concerns that may arise.

  • Awards and Recognition

    Over the years, we’ve collected several awards and recognitions. Here are just a few of the highlights:

    • Sacramento Rainbow Chamber of Commerce Corporate Advocate Award
    • A Most Admired CEO Honoree by the Sacramento Business Journal
    • West Sacramento Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year
