In 1952, San Bernardino School Employees Federal Credit Union was born out of a shoe box by a small group of teachers here in the city of San Bernardino. Our humble roots speak to the growth and resiliency of this credit union over the years. From new buildings, changing leadership, and finally becoming ‘Thinkwise Federal Credit Union’, our incredible journey is just beginning. Today, we honor our past while looking forward to our future. Our cooperative nature, devotion to the democratic process, and desire to give back to our members and community are driving forces in all that we do. Our past, present, and future membership is what makes Thinkwise Credit Union the financial institution we are today.
