In 1951 a young teacher and his wife, Dick and Jane Evans (yes, that's their real name), set out to purchase a family vehicle. While visiting a local credit union to apply for a car loan, it was suggested he start a credit union at the school he taught, Amphitheater High School. He joined a group of teachers and pooled $84 in total assets to form what is known today as Pima Federal Credit Union.

This humble beginning years ago served as the foundation on which our financial cooperative was built.

As founder Dick Evans expressed, "In those days (early 1950's) millions were never talked about. We never thought about growth--we were just glad to get a new member and our only concern was to serve them." This sentiment holds true to this day.
