On April 4, 1956 a group of 36 neighbors and friends held a meeting to discuss the organization of a federally chartered Kamuela Community FCU. The purpose they envisioned for the Credit Union would be to help people to save and to also help those in need. By the end of 1956 there were 166 members and a total of $12,263 in assets.
In January of 2003, our name was changed to Hawaii First FCU and has now been serving your community for over 55 years. With two branches to serve you conveniently located in Kamuela and Hilo, we currently have 7,320 members with a total of $33.4 million in assets.
