We are a not for profit financial institution, using our limited resources to change lives throughout St. Louis and St. Charles communities.
1st Financial Federal Credit Union is more than just a banking institution. Like all credit unions, we were created with a philosophy of ‘People Helping People’. This means we have the pleasure of being more than just a checking account or auto loan service provider. We make decisions every day with the knowledge that we not only have the power, but the responsibility to invest in the financial success of the communities we serve.
We have created community development programs that offer small monthly grants to nonprofits and government programs which are focused in the areas of providing sustainable housing, job training and education to our communities. These are the areas we see our members having some of the largest hurdles for financial success and it is our desire to use our limited resources to assist our community to overcome and succeed in each of these capacities.
Since early 2014 we have been able to donate over $30,000 to these local nonprofit and government initiated organizations and offer over 700 paid employee volunteer hours to the people of St. Louis and St. Charles counties.
At 1st Financial, we want you to know that when you invest your money in one of our checking accounts or auto loans, you have done more than give yourself a low cost banking product. You have also invested into the future success and continued change in the communities you love.
