History and Mission


Our History


Princeton Federal Credit Union was originally chartered in 1972, by the faculty and staff of Princeton University. We are financially sound and continue to grow and serve almost 8000 members from over 70 Select Employer/School Groups and all members of the New Jersey Consumer Council.

The Credit Union concept originated in Germany during the mid-1800s. A group of farmers tired of high prices and outrageous interest rates combined their money to buy supplies and establish a common pool to borrow from at lower interest rates. Although credit unions have changed over the years to meet the demands of our members, a long-standing philosophy of "People Helping People" has remained the same.


Our Mission

Princeton Federal Credit Union is dedicated to providing quality service, financial solutions and value, while building trusted relationships with our members for a lifetime.
