Desert Financial Foundation Scholarships

We proudly offer scholarships for high school seniors who give back to their community, adults (25 and older) who are pursuing certificates or degrees and student athletes who have overcome obstacles.

Sharing success is our mission


Founded in 2015, Desert Financial Foundation supports organizations and individuals in Arizona to strengthen financial capability through education and scholarships. The foundation’s programs continue to grow thanks to the generosity of its donors.  

As a credit union, we are committed to sharing our success with our local community and we have a passion for helping others. If you share that passion, we invite you to join us in giving back.
