Every big idea begins with a dream. Some of the biggest ideas of all--those that have improved the way the world works and plays using computer technology--were dreamed up in garages right here in Santa Clara County. Did you know that CommonWealth Central Credit Union was also born in a local garage?
In December 1958, Frank and Grace Coombs converted their garage into the first branch of what is now CommonWealth. The credit union operated in that space for some 13 years. Based on the principles of trust, responsibility and local pride, CommonWealth was established to help fellow members-primarily working-class families in the Santa Clara community-reach their financial goals. Over the past half-century, our principles have remained unchanged.
Today, CommonWealth offers a full range of financial services available at five local branch locations and convenient no-fee access at any CO-OP ATM.
Whether your dreams involve remodeling your home, restoring a muscle car or putting a new vehicle in your garage, CommonWealth is here to help. As a member-owned credit union in business for over 50 years, trust us to support your financial needs with competitive loans and savings products and genuine interest in your financial well-being.
