About Us at Asp!re Federal Credit Union
“Your Dream. Our Purpose.” Our Story

Aspire Federal Credit Union, originally known as FAA Eastern Region Federal Credit Union, was founded in 1948 to serve a small group of Civil Aeronautics Administration employees (currently the Federal Aviation Administration).

Our Credit Union has come a long way since those humble beginnings, which included seven people who pooled together shares of $5.00 each to initiate the original charter. Today, Aspire FCU is a $175 million dollar credit union, serving approximately 20,000 members within many diverse employee groups throughout the northeastern United States. Aspire FCU is a not-for-profit financial cooperative, which means all earnings at the end of the year are returned to our members in the form of better, low-cost financial services.

The decision to change our name to Aspire Federal Credit Union was made because we serve more than just the employees of the Federal Aviation Administration. The name Aspire means to "soar," which is a reflection of our heritage, while at the same time represents our members’ dreams and aspirations.

As our tag line states, "Your Dream. Our Purpose," the employees at Aspire FCU are dedicated to helping make your financial goals and dreams a reality. The cornerstone of our existence continues to be our "member first" philosophy. Whatever it is that you aspire for, we want you to believe you can get there and we’re going to help you along the way.
