A Little History on ABNB Federal Credit Union

This Virginia CU started a little later than the average credit union, so, it’s a bit younger than most. They were started in 1960 with 8 members and $40 in deposits, according to the CU’s website.

They’ve been in business for over 62 years, so they’ve got some experience! There are also over $780 million in assets and over 78,000 members.

It looks like their ATMS are just local. There are a decent amount of them in the area and through shared branches. Still, it would be nice to be in the CO-OP network or one of the other ones out there.

Do They Give Back at all?

ABNB Federal Credit Union does give back. They have a foundation called the ABNB Community Foundation. They have been involved with the community and charitable giving since their beginning in 1960. The community foundation was launched in 2019, so pretty recently.

Their mission statement: “To measurably improve the lives of families and children in the communities that we serve.”

They also have a vision statement at ABNB Federal Credit Union, which is:

“To come along side non-profit organizations who deliver vital community services and are located in communities served by ABNB Federal Credit Union. The focus is on improving the lives of families and children by providing financial and/or volunteer support.”

ABNB Federal Credit Union – Final Thoughts

You can find great community and great financial products at ABNB Federal Credit Union. They aren’t the biggest or the smallest, just somewhere in the middle. I do wish that they had more ATMS out there for national cash accessibility.

It’s a perfect place if you’re local and usually operating near where the branches are. Plus, it’s also not that big of a deal because they have refunds on ATM fees nationwide, up to $25 per month. It’s probably not that likely that you’ll even end up needing to use that. Anyways, they have plenty of assets and also give back to the community a lot at ABNB Federal Credit Union, which is awesome to see.
