Our Community

Santa Cruz Community Ventures

At Santa Cruz Community Credit Union (SCCCU), we are passionate about contributing to lasting social and economic justice. The community development work of SCCCU is implemented through Santa Cruz Community Ventures (SCCV), the 501(c)(3) affiliate of SCCCU.


Investing in Paths to Prosperity

SCCV equips people in our community with tools to achieve lasting financial security and independence. We accomplish this through programs in asset building, financial education, free tax assistance, and lending. Through these programs we are able to help low-wage, working families and individuals build assets including homes, higher education, and small businesses.
