Farewell to a Friend

The Southland Credit Union’s branch at Second & Spring Streets in downtown Los Angeles will be closing on Friday, March 31, 2017.  This location was the last home of the Los Angeles Times Federal Credit Union (later Cityside Credit Union) until it was acquired by Southland in 2009.  After the acquisition, credit union employees under manager Alex Kort continued to provide excellent customer service to employees, retirees, and their families.

The original Los Angeles Times Federal Credit Union was founded in 1935, about a year before Pfaffinger Foundation.   For years, Pfaffinger guaranteed the credit union’s loans to needy employees who would not otherwise qualify.   We want to take note of this long history, and to thank the credit union’s employees for their faithful service.

Pfaffinger’s New Home

Pfaffinger Foundation has relocated its offices about five blocks east of our former location.  They are about a 12-minute walk from the Los Angeles Times’ Spring St. entrance.

Located in the Little Tokyo district of downtown Los Angeles, the new offices are in the Pacific Commerce Bank building on the southeast corner of San Pedro and Third Street:

 Pfaffinger Foundation
420 E. Third St., Suite 1010
Los Angeles, CA  90013


The new offices provide Pfaffinger clients with validated parking in the building—enter the lot off Boyd St.  There is also metered street parking on Third St. and on San Pedro.


The Foundation’s telephone number, email address, and fax number are unchanged.   See Contact Us.
