Our Promise to You: Where People Bank for Good


Freedom First is a not-for-profit financial institution owned by its members and operated by a volunteer Board of Directors for the benefit of the members. What does "Where People Bank for Good" mean for you in terms of the banking products and services offered?

  • Responsibility Over Profit. Our profit goes towards ensuring reserve funds are adequate to safely survive economic downturns, loan losses, and periods of slower income growth. Also, members benefit by getting lower loan rates, higher deposit rates, fewer fees, and better service.

  • Your Voice Matters. As a member, you vote for the Board of Directors; in fact you could run for a position on the Board of Directors. Since our volunteer Board of Directors is comprised of members, it guarantees that the Credit Union looks out for your interests — not big profits.

  • Your Money is Safe. We are regulated and insured by the National Credit Union Administration, an independent federal agency of the United States Government that charters and supervises federal credit unions and insures each member's deposits up to $250,000 per account, per ownership category.

  • Community-Minded. It is a goal of the Credit Union to provide affordable banking and loan products to all individuals, regardless of socio-economic status, as well as improve the overall quality of life of the areas we serve through our community development and economic development projects.

CDFI stands for Community Development Financial Institution, and it is a special designation from the U.S. Treasury that means we are committed to improving the community around us by providing financial products and services to the underserved members of our community. We also foster local economic growth by financing the local businesses you know and love, making sure capital is reinvested in your backyard.
