The 85 year Heritage of our credit union
It was started by 10 African American Teachers on April 17, 1936, in the middle of the great depression.
Below is a copy of the original membership register (the original is on display in our Home office) of the first men and women who signed their names to start the foundation of our credit union.
The Original Membership Register represents the POWER of ONE Signature. What people can do if they choose to work together.
For 85 plus years, Richmond Heritage Federal Credit Union has supported urban communities, and individuals traditionally denied access to financial resources. We seek to provide everyone the opportunity to achieve basic foundations of financial security by offering affordable financial services.
