Our Story: Celebrating 80 Years of Success

It was June 2, 1937, when 8 men took it upon themselves to open up a credit union that would serve the financial needs of those employed for the Radford Foundry. This credit union came to be known as the Radford Pipe Shop Credit Union. Throughout the years, this credit union has seen many ups and downs. Even through harsh economical times for our country, such as the Great Depression, the Radford Pipe Shop Credit Union thrived and survived.

Now it's 2017, and many things have changed for us. We have changed our name to 1st New River Valley Federal Credit Union (1st NRV FCU), we now have an extended field of membership, and we have grown a staggering amount since our creation in 1937. After 80 years 1st NRV FCU is still going stronger than ever. We look to the future and are excited for the growth it will bring, but we are also striving to maintain the standards and the mentality of those 8 men who first decided to open this credit union.

bration of this 80 year milestone that 1st NRV FCU has reached, we will be holding 80 days of events, free food, and prize giveaways!

The Difference: Credit Unions vs. Banks

What is the Credit Union Difference??

Credit Union Difference

What Is a Credit Union? A credit union is a nonprofit, member-owned cooperative that provides financial services to its members.

Credit unions focus on saving and borrowing, but they may offer other common banking services.

Credit union membership is based on a certain field. These membership fields can be occupational, associational or geographical.

If you qualify, your first deposit also counts as your first purchased share. This makes you a member and partial owner of the credit union.
