Our History

1st Liberty Federal Credit Union was founded by Robert "Scotty" Scott and the co-founders: William Dawson, Joel Taylor, Morgan Moyer, Billie Brankovich, Ehud Markel, Kenneth Platt, and M.B. Holt. In June 1955 your credit union was chartered as Great Falls Air Force Base Federal Credit Union. The credit union started with only 54 members in August of 1955 with just 10 loans. Since then we've continued our growth and are currently over 16,000 members strong.

In 1956 we changed our name to Malmstrom Air Force Base Federal Credit Union (MAFBFCU). After many mergers and branch additions, our name was permanently changed to 1st Liberty Federal Credit Union. We felt our "new" name better reflects our vision for members in the Great Falls and future communities. This name change represented our new vision – becoming 1st in all we do.

Currently, we have seven full-service branches in Montana to serve our membership. They are:

Robert H. Scott: 6200 3rd Avenue N, Great Falls, MT
10th Avenue South:505 10th Avenue S, Great Falls, MT

We are fortunate to have a board of directors and management team that are forward thinkers and our goal is to "Make a positive difference in every member's life we touch." 1st Liberty FCU is proud to have a team that exemplifies that every day with every member.
