You deserve better

Managing your money well is an important part of life. So don't trust that responsibility to just anyone. With Education First, you're more than a member, you are a part-owner! We're a not-for-profit financial cooperative that's uniquely structured to help you improve your financial well-being.

Service is at the heart of what we do.

We focus on you, our member - understanding your goals and prioritizing your needs. When you want a better place to hold your accounts and grow your money, Education First is at the head of the class.
