New Logo! New Look!
First Federal is getting a new look! Our new logo is beginning to appear on all things First Federal! Updating the logo was a collaborative effort between our employees, board members and marketing partner. The final product reflects an updated, refreshed logo while still recalling the legacy of our 90+ years serving Linn County. During the coming months, the logo will be integrated into our signs, our offices, our stationary, website and more!
Planning is underway for the construction of our new branch office at Westdale Mall. Located at the corner of Williams Blvd and Westdale Parkway, construction will begin later this Spring with a target opening date in early October.

HomeRun for Hunger!!
First Federal Credit Union and the Cedar Rapids Kernels have created the HomeRun for Hunger program, a collaborative initiative to support the Hawkeye Area Community Action Program (HACAP). HomeRun for Hunger volunteers from First Federal and the Cedar Rapids Kernels will pick up food donations from vendors near the end of each Downtown Farmers’ Market where items will then be donated to HACAP. Our employees will be wearing HomeRun for Hunger t-shirts and will have wagons to transport donated items. All donated items will be taken to the on-site HACAP Mobile Pantry truck and delievered to the food reservoir that serves Linn and six surrounding counties.
