We Continue ToShine On!

At Desert Schools, helping people doesn’t just mean offering affordable loans or checking accounts.
It’s about helping others and being part of the community. Would you like to join us?

In 2014, we introduced our Shine On program to show our support for some inspiring community organizations. This year, we’re giving six new groups the opportunity to earn additional grant funds through your online votes. Find out how you can support groups that are doing amazing work, or use the resources we’ve provided to learn more about our community efforts.

Are You Ready toShine On?

Each of these six great causes earned $5,000, and can earn up to $5,000 more when you vote!

Serving our community
for more than 75 years

Our commitment to service was born in 1939, when 15 teachers joined together to create Desert Schools. Through providing financial services to our members, we learned about the needs of the whole community and looked for ways to make a difference. We’re committed to providing tools, support and guidance to organizations and individuals dedicated to service. By helping each other, we all grow stronger together.
