In 1952, Alliance Credit Union was established with the mission of people helping people. Today, Alliance announced that is has refreshed its brand and will transition to a new name:
Excite Credit Union. For over six decades, Excite has been dedicated to serving its members in Santa Clara, San Mateo, and Alameda counties in California as well as in New Hanover, Pender, and Brunswick counties in North Carolina. The new name reflects the credit unions commitment to continually revitalize its products, services, and branches while maintaining its iconic personalized service to more than 40,000 members.
The leadership of Excite Credit Union worked collaboratively with its staff to redefine the credit unions values. These include prioritizing people at the core of everything they do, and a commitment to investing in the neighborhoods they serve. From helping families achieve their financial goals, to partnering with local non-profits that are caring for foster youth and tackling homelessness, Excites focus is to support traditionally underserved communities.
As an alternative to for-profit banking, which prioritizes investors over customers, Excite Credit Union is dedicated to putting people above profits. By offering real value-for-money alternatives to the complicated products and numerous fees that have historically been the only choices available, Excite is removing a significant financial burden on low-income families. Empowering local people through education is a key goal. Improving their financial literacy gives them the ability to achieve their goals in life.
We are thrilled to be a part of the community and strengthen the relationships we have with our local partners, such as the San Jose Giants. Our goal is to assist foster and at-risk youth to be knowledgeable about their finances, manage them well, and be successful in creating a sustainable financial future. The new name helps us stand apart in a crowded marketplace and reaffirms our commitment to our communities, members, and staff, stated Taruna Bajaj, VP of marketing at Excite Credit Union.
