California Coast Credit Union (also known as Cal Coast) is the longest-serving credit union in San Diego County, headquartered in San Diego, California. As of Q1 of 2017, it had more than $2.1 billion in assets,[2] over 150,000 members, and 24 branch locations.[3]

History[edit]

California Coast is a not-for-profit financial institution that was founded by a group of educators in 1929. Its founding members included employees of Solar Aircraft, AT&T and San Diego Gas & Electric.[citation needed] Today, California Coast serves residents who work or live in San Diego or Riverside counties.[4]

It is part of the CO-OP interbank network, with access to over 30,000 ATMs in the U.S. and Canada. Through that Network, the firm also offers CO-OP Shared Branches, which gives members access to more than 5,400[5] nationwide branch locations.[6]

Cal Coast Open Air Amphitheater[edit]

On January 1, 2014, the firm purchased the naming rights to San Diego State University’s on-campus amphitheater which will now be called Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theater.[7] Formerly called the Greek Bowl and the Open Air Theatre, the amphitheater opened in 1941 and is one of San Diego's longest running outdoor venues.[8] Currently, it serves mainly as a venue for live music and comedy acts.
