Robins Federal Credit Union was founded in 1954 when a group of 13 Robins Air Force Base civilian and military personnel signed the application for a charter. The charter read that the requested field of membership was for “civilian employees and commissioned officers of the Department of the Air Force who worked at or had headquarters at Robins Air Force Base, Georgia; employees of this credit union; members of their immediate families; and organizations of such persons.” The charter was approved on March 23, 1954 and on April 1, 1954, Robins Federal Credit Union was officially born. The Swainsboro branch opened in 1996. In 2016, the credit union changed to a state charter and became Robins Financial Credit Union. Membership is now open to all who live or work in one of the 40 counties that the credit union serves.
Robins Financial is a financial institution/credit union with 440 employees that offers accounts, loans, insurance, digital services, and financial education. They have 22 branch locations throughout Georgia as far north as Athens and as far south as Swainsboro and McRae. Their mission statement is “Member Focused. Financial Partners. Community Proud.” The financial institution values enhancing the financial well-being of its members and community. Credit unions exist to serve their members, not to make a profit. Every member counts, including those of modest means. The “people-first” philosophy impels credit unions and their employees to get involved in their community and support worthwhile causes. Robins Financial Credit Union undertakes multiple projects each year to benefit the entire community, not just Robins Financial Credit Union members.
The credit union awards graduating high school seniors a scholarship and provides financial literacy classes. In addition, the credit union sponsors and donates to local non-profit organizations as well as supporting community events. Robins Financial Credit Union employees volunteer their time with organizations such as the Children’s Miracle Network, United Way, and Toys for Tots. The financial institution understands the importance of not only supporting their members but also supporting the communities in which they are a part of and being a chamber member is a great way to do that. According to Robins, the chamber is one of the pillars of local communities, and the support they provide to businesses and the people that live there helps strengthen those communities. Robins Financial Credit Union is proud to support the Swainsboro-Emanuel County Chamber of Commerce.
