Redwood Credit Union Voted Best Credit Union

Marin Independent Journal readers name RCU Best Credit Union in Marin County

Marin IJ Best Credit Union 2017San Rafael, Calif. – Redwood Credit Union (RCU) was named “Best Credit Union” in the Marin Independent Journal’s first annual Readers’ Choice Awards celebration held at the newspaper’s headquarters in San Rafael on May 3rd and featured in a special 2017 Readers’ Choice Awards issue.

“We’re honored to be named ‘Best Credit Union’ by readers of the Marin Independent Journal—it’s always rewarding to be recognized, but especially when it’s directly from the people and communities we serve,” said Brett Martinez, RCU president and CEO. “With a growing membership and three locations in Marin County, we’re looking forward to even further helping Marin residents, businesses, and the community succeed,” Martinez added.

With $3.5 billion in assets, RCU is one of the largest of nearly 6,000 credit unions nationwide. Serving over 285,000 members, RCU has 19 North Bay and San Francisco locations, including its newest branch at 695 E. Blithedale Ave. in Mill Valley’s Alto Plaza shopping center. Additional Marin County branches are located at 209 Third Street in San Rafael’s Montecito Plaza Shopping Center, and 1010 Grant Avenue in Novato.

One of the many ways RCU gives back to the Marin community is through a special relationship with Marin’s nonprofit SchoolsRule. Every time Marin residents use their RCU credit or debit card, RCU makes a donation to SchoolsRule Marin, which funds arts, health, technology, and literacy programs for all public school students in Marin County.
