About Us

Why FEW? We're different. We're a not-for-profit financial cooperative. Different than a bank, our customers are members, which means that when you open your account, you're part owner of FEW. That's great news! Profits made by FEW are returned back to you in the form of higher savings rates, better loan rates and low or no fees.

We offer virtually every financial service you need, for every stage of your life – all with better value than banks and delivered with more personal attention.
