As a credit union, Franklin First is a not-for-profit financial cooperative owned and operated by our members. We look forward to serving you and showing you the credit union difference.

At Franklin First, we want to earn the privilege of being your primary financial institution by providing a better way of banking.

Since September, 1958 Franklin First has melded four Franklin County credit unions into one. Those four credit unions originated as the Franklin County Public Hospital FCU, Franklin County Teachers FCU, Lunt Silversmiths and Greenfield Tap & Die Credit Unions.

Franklin First's charter allows anyone to join who lives, works, worships or goes to school in Franklin County, Massachusetts.

Credit unions and banks are both financial institutions but there are endless differences between the two.
