    Suncoast History: A Legacy of Serving Educators

    In 1934, a small group of local educators founded Hillsborough County Teachers Credit Union. That gathering was the beginning of Suncoast Credit Union’s rich history. Our organization has grown and expanded over the years to include anyone who lives, works, attends school or worships in the Florida counties we serve.

    Today, Suncoast is the largest credit union in Florida. Though our membership has grown beyond just educators, our commitment to education remains strong. From college scholarships to charitable donations through the Suncoast Credit Union Foundation, we’re proud to support education initiatives in the communities we serve. We even partner with schools to offer free financial education and offer student-run branches to schools within our footprint.
