In 1976, our founder Dale Dooley had an innovative vision for the future of payments. He believed in the possibility of community financial institutions processing electronic payments quickly and securely, but also cost-effectively.


Strengthening financial institutions.

As a national member-owned corporation, SHAZAM doesn’t answer to shareholders, giving us the freedom to do what’s right for our participants. Whether it’s developing superior products, offering regulatory guidance or providing educational support, we’re here to save community financial institutions money and reinvest in their success.

Vibrant communities located in small towns, suburbs or big-city neighborhoods, inspire our mission. Community financial institutions strengthen and improve the local community. They’re the foundation of the American dream with ideals of opportunity, equality, independence, success, and prosperity. Knowing that people in local communities directly benefit from our mission is why we turn on the lights every morning.
