Our Story

Firefly is committed to your financial
well-being and success.

Your goals are our priority, and we exist to help you reach them. As a not-for-profit financial institution, we're different from a bank because our members are our owners (people who live, work, worship, attend school, or volunteer in the Greater Twin Cities Community‚Ą† of Minnesota). Our profits are returned to you in the form of competitive rates, higher investment returns and fewer fees.

There is no financial institution quite like a credit union. While we are similar to banks in the services we offer, our structure and our mission are very different. How different? See for yourself. We also love sharing our knowledge of the credit union difference. Ask us to learn more.
