Equipping our members with the tools they need to reach their financial goals.
As a certified Community Development Financial Institution, Freedom First is dedicated to serving those who lack access to financial services from mainstream banking institutions. Our goal as a CDFI is to equip our members with the tools they need to reach their financial goals, and our nonprofit community partners with the capital they need to implement their projects and fulfill their missions.
Meaningful support is more than simply about dollars donated, it’s about getting help to the places where it’ll have the most positive impact in the local community.
