About Great Basin
Hey. We’re Great Basin and we’ve been supporting our members since 1951. Why have we been invested in our members’ success for the last seven decades? Because when they succeed, we succeed with them. Our members aren’t just members. They’re owners of the credit union and they’re an extension of our families. From first cars to first homes. Weddings, kids, and everything in between, our members know that they can trust us to keep it simple by giving them the financial resources they need to navigate every stage of their lives.
A lot of things have changed since 1951. Technology. Our members. Our name. But one thing has remained constant: our commitment to providing an honest, fair, and personal banking experience. Every. Single. Time. Whether it’s stopping by one of our local branches or chatting with us online, we can’t wait to chat with you and show you why we’re not just member-owned, but we’re member-loved, too. ❤️

Board of Directors
Our volunteer Board of Directors is comprised of members of the credit union. The Board is responsible for the oversight and direction of Great Basin’s business to ensure that the long-term interests of its member-owners are being served. The Board’s primary responsibilities are the setting of the mission, vision, and values; approving and setting risk management standards to assure financial safety and soundness; and reviewing and approving strategic plans, budget and business plans. For information on this year’s Board elections, please click below. You can also contact us anytime to learn more.
Great Basin Federal Credit Union has been a member of the community since our charter on January 11, 1951. What began as a 50 member credit union for Reno-Bell Phone Company employees has grown to a community chartered credit union serving over 20,000 people. Our philosophy of building personable relationships with our members still remains a core value to the board members and staff.
For a little glimpse into our history, take a look at this short interview with the charming Jack Dunn – one of the founding members and first President of the credit union:
Employees Give Back

This 100% optional program is rooted purely in the hearts of our team members, who are passionate about living out our core values both in and out of the branch.
