At the heart of every credit union is the community they serve, and at SunWest Credit Union we are passionate about creating a positive impact that lifts others and radiates empathy throughout Arizona.

refi for a reason

Credit unions are not-for-profit, so the profit we do make is spent toward innovation for our member services and supporting our community. One way we do this is by donating to nonprofits during our Refi for a Reason promotion.

share the love

In addition to volunteering and fundraising, we show support to those that are often overlooked in our community to help them feel a sense of belonging + show them kindness.

Care Packages + Lunch on Us

We assembled care packages that we handed out with meals to people around our branches experiencing homelessness to let them know they are not alone.

Goodyear Fire Department

We surprised local fire departments with lunch to thank them for their dedication to keeping our communities safe.

Glencroft Assisted Living

We visited residents in assisted living facilities with flowers, snacks, and friendly conversation.

Cards for Hospitalized Kids

We got crafty and put together fun cards for kids currently in the hospital to brighten their day and remind them someone is on their side.

pay it forward

We can’t solve all the world’s problems, but for our members and local community, we can make a world of difference. Pay it Forward allows us to offer funds to people in times of crisis or when they don’t know how they’ll make ends meet.

lend a helping hand

We created SunWest Cares to improve the overall well-being of our communities, whether that’s through financial means or showing up for others. The healthiest communities are the ones where people connect and show compassion for each other, and that’s the mission we’ll continue striving to fulfill.
