About Heritage Community Credit Union - Fair Oaks
In 1953, the roots of Heritage Community Credit Union were planted when seven civilians working on Mather Air Force Base recognized a need for better financial service on base. In the years that followed, this organization would grow to serve military personnel as well and take on the name, Mather Federal Credit Union.
In January 1989, the United States Department of Defense announced the 1993 closure of Mather Air Force Base, but Mather Federal's management vowed they would remain open, regardless of the final disposition of the base. As a result of the announced closure of Mather Air Force Base, we began adding local employer groups to our field of membership and completed two successful mergers with other credit unions to grow our membership base.
