Heritage Federal Credit Union was established in 1955 to serve the financial needs of a select group of employers and employees in the Charleston area. The institution has grown to serve more than 300 employee groups, but still offers low cost loans and all of the financial tools its members may need to lead a successful financial life. The founding officers of the credit union worked on a voluntary basis and officers still do so today. No member of the board of directors receives compensation for their time.
