We’re building better futures for all.

Who We Are

We’re Alltru Credit Union.

We’re here to introduce you to a different way to bank. Some might even say better.

You might have known us as 1st Financial Federal Credit Union. We changed our name in 2020 to better reflect our steadfast commitment to you.

It’s a commitment that has been consistent since our 1968 beginnings as the McDonnell Douglas Credit Union. Since then, we have helped hundreds of thousands of people across the St. Louis region achieve their financial dreams.

At every stage of your life, we’re here with the financial advice and guidance you need. Unlike a bank, we’re not here to sell you products. We’re here to serve you, every day carrying out the Alltru Credit Union motto, “Not for profit, not for charity, but for service.”
