Our History and Mission
Park Community was established in 1965 to serve the employees of General Electric’s Appliance Park in Louisville, Kentucky, hence the name “Park” Federal Credit Union. “Park” continued to grow over the years serving GE employees in other states, and we eventually expanded our services to over 500 Select Employment Groups (SEGs). In 2003, Park became a Community Chartered Credit Union, opening its doors to anyone who lives, works, worships, goes to school, or volunteers in the nine-county Louisville Metro Area. With our new focus on serving the community, we changed our name to Park Community Federal Credit Union. In addition to the Louisville Metro Area, Park also offers membership to select counties and areas in Berea, Lexington, and Richmond in Kentucky.*
In 2014, after a vote in favor by the membership, Park Community Federal Credit Union converted to a state chartered credit union. The charter change also came with a subtle name change, removing the word federal from its name. With the charter change, Park Community was able to expand its servicing area in the Bluegrass Region, which includes: Anderson, Bourbon, Boyle, Clark, Estill, Fayette, Franklin, Garrard, Harrison, Jackson, Jessamine, Lincoln, Madison, Mercer, Nicholas, Powell, Scott, and Woodford Counties in Kentucky.
While the members we are able to serve has changed over the years, our mission to provide exceptional service and a full range of financial products has not. Our philosophy continues to focus on the credit union motto of “people helping people” as we STRIVE to be YOUR full-service financial institution.
