From a broom closet, grow was born.
The year was 1955, to be exact, and some of the civilian employees of MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, FL, decided a credit union was needed to provide financial services for base personnel. It was a pretty good idea, considering banks didn’t pay much attention to the military community back then. So a broom closet in an office building was cleared out, and a credit union was born – MacDill Air Force Base Federal Credit Union.
Timing, as they say, is everything. Our credit union grew right along with the booming Sunbelt, and as we opened new stores and welcomed new people from all walks of life, our original name wasn’t such a good fit anymore. We had become, well, more. More to the members and communities we served. That’s when we made the change to Grow Financial, a name that really defines what we’re all about. Helping our members grow. Personally. Professionally. Financially.
So there you have it, our story. And after 60 years, we think it’s just beginning.
