Credit Union History

In the late 1920’s, the Richmond Fire Department Credit Union Inc. was founded because of the need to borrow money to purchase a sewing machine. Three (3) members of the City of Richmond, Fire Department pooled their monies together for the purchase and thought that this should be available to all the members of the department.

On May 11, 1929, a charter was formed and we were incorporated with the Commonwealth of Virginia’s State Corporation Commission. Today we have grown to 1500 plus members with $15,000,000.00+ in assets as a financial institution serving members all over the United States and the world.
