St. Augustine Presbyterian Federal Credit Union is a credit union based in the South Bronx, New York, serving the congregation of St. Augustine Presbyterian Church, which since 1938 has been a beacon for the community, founded on the principle that the church’s doors were open for the entire community and people of all cultures to gather and worship as one.
During the 1940s and 1950s, the congregation grew to more than a thousand members, which included mostly African Americans and Puerto Ricans. This spirit of unity moved founding pastor Reverend Edler Garnet Hawkins and other church leaders to look at the financial needs of the community and start a credit union of their own, run by a board of directors and staff that looked like them and spoke their language.
Today, St. Augustine FCU continues to be a financial anchor in the community. The credit union currently provides much-needed access to safe and affordable banking services, offering members a range of loans and savings accounts.
About Our Products & Services
A loan lets you borrow money that you agree to pay back, with interest, at a later date. Typical credit union loans include personal loans, auto loans and mortgage loans. Credit union members often enjoy lower interest rates and may have an easier time getting approved for a loan than at a bank.
An account (called a share account at a credit union) that lets you earn interest on the money you deposit. Interest rates are low, but minimum deposit is small. Unlike investment accounts, savings accounts – and the money you keep in them – are federally insured up to $250,000.
