About Great Basin

About Great Basin

There are a couple of things you should really get to know about us here at Great Basin. One, we’re genuinely pretty nice folks. Two, we’re pretty darn good at our jobs. Three, we really like to help our members throughout their lives. In fact, one of our core values is to be “your loyal partner throughout life’s adventures.” And however and whenever we can help, we will. Of course, we could go on and on, but really, the best way to get to know us is to come into a branch, open an account or talk about a loan or maybe just ask a few questions of one of our very personable people here. We look forward to seeing you. Soon.

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 15,000 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:
