We aren’t your average bank–we’re real people making an extraordinary difference for over 84 years.
SunWest was founded on the belief that financial institutions should exist to serve. Our original founders knew then what a lot of bankers still don’t understand. Financial institutions should help people, not take advantage of them. That’s why 12 telephone workers came together to create a financial cooperative with one goal in mind--to help people thrive financially so they can excel personally.
We opened in 1937 as Phoenix Telco and ended our first year with 45 flourishing members and a solid foundation for future growth. Today, we stand stronger than ever with over 50,000 members and 117 employees committed to upholding our founding promise to help all members grow and thrive. Our members continue to rely on us to get them where they want to be because they know we care more about their lives than we do our bottom line. We have over 84 years of experience in the industry and just as much history when it comes to making a difference in the lives of those who put their trust in us. That’s 84 years of proven success in giving the reins to the people so that each and every one of our members can look forward to a better tomorrow.
Through our empowered staff, SunWest’s mission is to provide exceptional service focused on dedication, integrity and compassion to help our members grow and thrive.
SunWest Federal Credit Union will improve the financial health of our members while enriching the communities we serve.
We will accomplish this by sticking to our core values.

Our employees rock and we aren’t afraid to sing their praises. They care deeply about their community and they work hard for our members. We know we wouldn’t be one of the best credit unions in Arizona without them so we do our part to guarantee their happiness.* That’s why we offer excellent benefits and strive to create an atmosphere to be envied. You have to work to support the life you love, so why not love the work you do?
*Our lawyers tell us we cannot guarantee anything. Your happiness is up to you, BUT we are here to help you have a good time while you work.
