STAR Community Credit Union History
STAR Community Credit Union is the oldest locally owned and operated financial institution in Chico.
STAR was formed in 1958 under state charter by four college professors who believed that a credit union would provide necessary benefits to the faculty and staff of Chico State and other Chico schools. It has since grown to include Chico State students, as well as students, faculty and staff from Butte Community College, all Butte County schools, employees of the Chico Police Department and employees of Enloe Medical Center.

STAR is proud to represent a broad range of the North State community and its diverse cultures. In nearly 50 years of civic involvement, we have watched with pride as Butte County and our residents have grown and thrived. Thanks to our members, we too continue to flourish. With their support, we look forward to the next 50 years of success.
