Power Financial Credit Union (PFCU), one of South Florida’s largest credit unions, is excited to announce the celebration of its 70th anniversary. To commemorate its anniversary, PFCU is giving back to the members and community that have supported it since 1951, with donations of $7,070 each to seven deserving South Florida charitable organizations. The seven charities that will split the nearly $50,000 include: The Advocacy Network on Disabilities, Jason Taylor Foundation, Take Stock in Children, Save Foundation, Shifting Gears United, Achievement Centers for Children and Families and LifeNet4Families.
“It has been our unwavering commitment to our members and our community, through good times and bad, that has allowed us to thrive for the last 70 years,” commented Allan Prindle, President and CEO. “We have been fortunate to earn the trust and support of our members and the entire South Florida community. We wanted to show our appreciation as we celebrate this significant milestone by donating to some very worthy charitable causes.”
In 1951, Power Financial Credit Union began as the credit union for the employees of Florida Power & Light Company and their families. From humble beginnings 70 years ago, PFCU has flourished into a modern, full-service financial institution with nearly a billion dollars in assets, serving almost 35,000 members and growing, in 13 counties across Florida. Anyone that lives, works or goes to school in Broward, Charlotte, Collier, Lee, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe, Palm Beach County, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pinellas, Sarasota or St. Lucie counties; employees of FPL/NextEra; employees of Ryder System; members and employees of Bonefish & Tarpon Trust; and immediate family of all current members can join the credit union.
Prindle added, “We wouldn’t be the award-winning credit union that we are without our members. We thank you for your confidence in us and your support over the last seven decades. We look forward to serving you in the future and continuing to provide you with personalized banking solutions that help turn your financial dreams into realities.”
Its 70th year presents many exciting opportunities for PFCU to strengthen its ability to serve its members. PFCU will continue to improve its products and services with value-added member experience as the main focus. The credit union will enhance its Financial Empowerment program by including videos, quick reference guides and other tools to help members improve their financial wellness. PFCU will also further upgrade its Online Banking and 4.8 star rated Mobile App to provide members with an even more seamless, secure and convenient banking experience.
“Thank you to our Board of Directors and our dedicated team for your commitment to serving our members,” commented Leman Murray, Chairman of the Board. “To see what Power Financial Credit Union has grown into is truly astonishing. Our entire team is looking forward to serving our members and their families for the next 70 years and beyond.”
