About Us

The Enfield Community Federal Credit Union was originally chartered on October 19, 1936, as the Bigelow-Sanford Employee’s Credit Union. The original field of membership consisted of the carpet mill’s employees. There were seven different department credit unions within the company. However in 1946, the seven credit unions were merged into one.

In 1971

In 1971, when the Bigelow Sanford Carpet Mills moved south, the Credit Union was granted a community charter and an expanded field of membership. In 1980 the community charter was expanded to include anyone who lives, works or worships in the town of Enfield and their family members. In 2003 the members of the Enfield Federal Credit Union voted to merge with the Enfield Community Federal Credit Union. However, in 2015 our charter was, once again, expanded to include Hartford County and the towns of Somers, Stafford and Ellington.

We are proud of our history and the ability to offer a wide variety of financial services that meets the evolving needs of our ever expanding community.

Our Philosophy


The Enfield Community Federal Credit Union (ECFCU) practices the philosophy of “people helping people”. Our belief is to look out for our members’ interests and provide a level of service that is not generally available at other financial institutions. Whether it’s providing a loan to help a member cover unexpected medical bills, assiting with a mortgage application or simply offering a better deal on a used car loan, ECFCU strives to make a difference in the lives of our members and in the communities we serve.
