In addition to the recognition for its all-around excellence in banking and customer (member) service, Freedom was also named a “Trailblazer” by the MD|DC Credit Union Association for their original social impact challenge, the #FreedomToHelpChallenge.  The viral challenge also drew national attention from the Marketing Association of Credit Unions, where the campaign won “Best in Show” for its ingenuity and community impact. 

Freedom has long been known as a staple of support for community initiatives.  Freedom annually supports more than 80 local causes that are important to its members, staff, and the communities at large.  The Credit Union encourages employees to volunteer their time and skills to better serve their community, including serving on local non-profit boards.  Organizations including the Harford Community College Foundation and Harford Family House honored Freedom for their commitments last year. 

“We want to extend our deepest gratitude to our membership. Your recognition is the single biggest compliment we could have received,” remarked Mike MacPherson, Freedom’s President and CEO.   “Although we are not in this business for the recognition, it’s something we can take pride in when it does come.  Mostly, we are proud to be a credit union made up of employees, board directors, committee volunteers, and members, who are all working to better the communities we serve in meaningful ways.”

Established in 1953, Freedom Federal Credit Union offers a full suite of personal and business banking services to those affiliated with Harford County, which recently expanded to also include Baltimore County.  In addition to six conveniently located branches, members can take advantage of state-of-the-art online and mobile banking, 25/7 LIVE customer support, and a network of over 80,000 ATMS with no fees.
