Our Mission & Story
Family Savings Credit Union…. Where your money grows with you and your family, and ownership allows all members to prosper.
The concept of a credit union is one where 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, Inc. employees each pulled $5.25 from their pockets and chartered Family Savings Credit Union.
Since that time, Family Savings has grown to over 70,000 members with eleven branches located in Alabama and Georgia. We still serve former employees of Goodyear, but we've extended our family 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, St. Clair, Morgan, Cullman and Talladega Counties, Alabama.
- Georgia - Persons who live or work in Bartow, Catoosa, Chattooga, Dade, Floyd, Gordon, Haralson, Paulding, Polk, Carroll, Cherokee, Cobb, Douglas, Murray, Whitfield and Walker Counties, Georgia.
- Family Members - related by blood, adoption, legal guardianship, or marriage to anyone within Family Savings Credit Union's Field of Membership.
Today, Family Savings Credit Union is still driven by the same mission: Not for Profit, Not for Charity, But for Service
We are dedicated to giving members a lower cost alternative to the traditional banking system. Members, not profits, have always been and still are our top priority. We are equally dedicated to providing state-of-the-art products and services backed by personalized member service.
Like a family, we want to make sure that all our members succeed. That's why our employees go the extra step to ensure that you are receiving customized advice and helpful service every step of the way.
Don't just become a customer, be part of a family that succeeds when its members succeed.
