What Makes Desert Financial Different?

LET’S MAKE A DIFFERENCE TOGETHER!

MAKE MY DONATION

Most financial institutions are happy to tell the world when they donate money or sponsor a charity run. But what are they really hoping to get out of it?

At Desert Financial, we believe in sharing success with our community, our members and our team — not because we expect anything in return, but simply because it’s the right thing to do.

  • $13M cash given back to members in 2 years
  • We helped teachers at 75+ Valley schools by renovating their break rooms, purchasing much-needed school supplies and more!
  • 622 Random Acts of Kindness and counting
  • We pledged $2M to the educational program at Phoenix Children’s Hospital
  • In 2018, we raised more than $600,000 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals
  • Our team volunteers more than 5,000 hours per year!

If you buy certain shoes because they donate a second pair to someone in need, why wouldn’t you do your banking with a credit union that cares about the community? Desert Financial focuses on contributing time and money to the community, while Big Banks are more concerned with making their shareholders happy.
