Our Mission: Providing financial solutions for every stage of life.
Dear Valued Member,

On behalf of the entire staff at Community First Credit Union, I want to personally thank you for being such a loyal member. As CEO, I don’t often get the chance to speak directly with our best members and tell you how much I truly appreciate you. Because of members like you, we’ve been able to do some big things this year to enhance your banking experience and support the local community. Many of these initiatives are outlined in this month's newsletter, such as our branch transformation in Yulee and our community partnership with the Jacksonville Icemen hockey team. 

As we approach the end of the year, I am thankful for you and the things we’ve already done to help improve your life. We are so happy to have you as one of Community First’s most loyal members. We appreciate the trust you place in us each and every day. We look forward to our continued relationship as we strive each day to find additional reasons for you to Love Where You Bank.

We want to thank you for being the best part of Community First! It’s never been a better time to be a member. As John mentioned in his State of the Credit Union letter, it's because of members like you that we’ve been able to do some big things to support our local community and enhance your banking experience. 

  • Community PartnershipsWe provided support to several local sports teams, schools, children, and families through education initiatives, scholarships, financial literacy, and much more. 
  • Community First Cares Foundation: Our non-profit community foundation – the charitable arm of Community First Credit Union – continued to support local non-profit organizations to fund projects that improve financial literacy, education systems, health and wellness, and the underserved needs in the community.
  • Branch Transformations: We committed to Building Better Banking across Northeast Florida this year by renovating the Northside and Beach branches, moving our Fleming Island and Yulee branches, and building a new branch in Oakleaf.
  • Member ExperiencesWhether it was providing helpful seminars around town or offering new services, we elevated our member experience this year.

Watch this quick video to see just some of the ways we shared the love with our members this year.
