Why Just Bank When You Can Belong?
Our story started in 1951 as a 50-member credit union for Reno-Bell Phone Company Employees. In the last seven decades, our reach has expanded outside of the phone company and into Washoe County, serving more than 20,000 members. But our story doesn’t end there.
While we will always honor and remember our roots, we are now so excited to expand even further and grow our presence across 12 total counties across Northern Nevada and Treasure Valley, Idaho:
- Washoe County, NV

We give a DAMN about every member..
Whether you’ve been a member for 10 years or 10 days, we strive to make every experience fair, honest, and personal. With every member who visits a branch, interacts with our live chat, or calls our eBranch, we strive to build a relationship with them to make them feel empowered and confident when making financial decisions.
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. Let us show you why we’re not just member-owned, but member-loved, too. <3
We care enough to...
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.
