Our Mission, Our Story
The concept of a credit union is that people can get better financial services by pooling their resources and working together.
In 1951 these principles were brought to Gadsden, AL, when a group of seven Goodyear Tire and Rubber employees each pulled $5.25 from their pockets and chartered Family Savings Federal Credit Union.
Since that time, Family Savings has grown to over 60,000 members with branches located in Alabama and Georgia. We still serve the employees of Goodyear, but we've extended membership to also include:
Alabama - Persons who live, worship, work (or regularly conduct business in), or attend school in Etowah, Marshall, DeKalb, Jackson, Cherokee, Calhoun, Cleburne, Madison, Blount and St. Clair Counties, Alabama.
Georgia - Persons who live in Bartow, Catoosa, Chattooga, Dade, Floyd, Gordon, Haralson, Paulding, Polk and Walker Counties, Georgia.
Today, Family Savings Credit Union is still driven by the same mission:
