80th Anniversary Celebrations

SESLOC 80 year anniversary

Our heart and focus is People & Place. 

Our roots go back to 1942 when 10 school employees came together with a vision of building a credit union — a financial institution based on people helping people. Today, we are celebrating our 80th anniversary with our 57,000+ members as the longest-established, locally headquartered financial institution on the Central Coast. While a lot has changed over the last eight decades, our commitment to our community and members hasn’t.

Charitable Giving

a boost for the do-gooders

Did you know? SESLOC was formed in 1942 with just $500 in assets. Because of you and the support from our community, we have grown to more than a billion in assets over the last 80 years.

To honor this achievement, we’re giving $500 to 80 local nonprofits. Funds may help support programs or simply offer lunch or a little treat for all of the hard-working staff and volunteers.

Our incredible staff is nominating their favorite 501-(c)(3)-designated organizations throughout the year. Each month we will announce eight of the selected nonprofits (beginning in March and through December).

See the eight selected local nonprofits for each month. Please consider donating to these worthy organizations.
