Making a difference in the place we live and love
Spirit of Alaska Federal Credit Union got its start as a caring credit union founded by teachers.
We find it important to continue supporting our local schools and teachers, and seek out partnerships.
Historically, we’ve partnered with Hunter Elementary School, Ryan Middle School, Lathrop High School, North Pole Middle School, North Pole High School, and more.
By supporting and partnering with organizations like Plenty for All and the Fairbanks Resource Agency, Spirit of Alaska Federal Credit Union works hard to uplift our community and make life here in Fairbanks better for everyone.
