Our History

Since day one, our goal has been to help our members succeed. Yolo Federal was born when a group of local County Sheriff Department employees banded together to help their colleagues buy the equipment they needed for work. By 1954, we were chartered and officially organized as a federal credit union, under our original name “Yolo County Employees Federal Credit Union.”

We’re a family organization—just a bunch of “people helping people.” We started with a small branch in Woodland. Today, we have locations sprinkled across Yolo County. Our members are our partners, and we’re committed to helping them throughout their lives, whether they’re buying their first homes or shopping for the perfect retirement plan. For more than 60 years, generations of Yolo County residents have benefited from a financial institution that really, truly has their best interests at heart.
