Why JHFCU

Choosing a financial institution can be like choosing a friend—you want one that looks out for your interests and has values that appeal to you. Johns Hopkins Federal Credit Union was founded by a small group of Johns Hopkins University employees in 1971.  As a credit union, our charter allows us to serve various groups. In our case, we have stuck to our roots, expanding to serve other Johns Hopkins and related entities.  We truly are built by and for the Hopkins community.  Find out more about why you should join, and about our history and more, below.

Comments from Members

While we could probably fill pages with stories about how we have helped members, we think it’s best when our  members share in their own words:

A member of JHFCU since 1989, I have purchased several cars and had other loans with the CU over the years, many of them facilitated by Sharon Battaglia. Sharon is, hands down, the best loan officer I have ever worked with, from any financial institution. She knows her business thoroughly, is always kind, patient and thoughtful, and never places herself above the customer.
