The Imperial Valley Press' READER'S CHOICE awards are back and we are excited to announce that we will be participating in the hopes of taking, once again, the title of Best Bank or Local Credit Union in the Imperial Valley. This of course can’t be done without the help of our loyal community members.


The RCA is a local event in the Imperial Valley ran by the Imperial Valley Press (IV Press), our local newspaper/broadcasting company, aimed to help promote local businesses and influencers in the area. IV Press holds this competition once every year and gives the power to the community to vote and declare a winner in each category they layout.

Why vote Sun Community for the Best Local Credit Union?

Before answering that question we should ask ourselves “What makes SUN so great?”

Let’s start out with location. Sun Community Federal Credit Union (SCFCU) has 10 branches across the Imperial Valley and Coachella valley.

Imperial Valley branches: Calexico, El Centro, Imperial, Holtville, Brawley, Calipatria
Coachella Valley branches: Indio, Palm Desert, Palm Springs

Compared to banks in the area this is HUGE! There is a Sun Community branch in almost every city in the Imperial Valley! Not to mention the thousands of ATMs located inside 7-eleven’s across town that let you withdraw money without any surcharges (CO-OP ATMs). This means that access to your money is always near you.

Another great aspect is the service we give to our members. When you bank with a credit union like Sun Community you are not just a number. You are part of a member owned institution whose mission is to educate and empower you financially to be able to change your life and the lives around you. At Sun Community we care.

If that isn’t enough, Sun Community offers the lowest personal loan rates in the Imperial Valley and Coachella Valley. We consider this the icing on the cake. We can dive deeper into why SUN has the lowest rates but since we have other blogs about that topic, we’ll skip that for now ;).

What’s to come?

To celebrate RCA and bring awareness to our members, our staff will be having a SPIRIT WEEK from the 28th of June to the 2nd of July.

Visit any of our branches during the week to check out what we are up to. Don’t forget to vote for SUN during that week!

Make sure to follow us on our social media channels. We post educational content like this and other credit union fun activities. Stay connected and SHINE ON!
