Alert: Protect Yourself from Credit Union Impersonation Scams

Our 75th Anniversary

Home Community Involvement Our 75th Anniversary

Proudly Serving Berks County for 75 Years

Riverfront Federal Credit Union was founded in 1948 as the RDG Reading Federal Credit Union to serve the employees of the Reading Railroad. Over the years, other organizations and companies were permitted to join, leading to substantial growth. To reflect the resulting diversity of our field of membership, we changed our name to Riverfront Federal Credit Union in 1987. In 2000 Riverfront added the City of Reading as an underserved area to our field of membership. We were granted a charter amendment in 2008 to allow anyone who currently lives, works, worships or attends school in Berks County, Pennsylvania or is a legal entity doing business in Berks County to join. We are as proud of our beginning as how far we have come today.

Our Mission

To enhance the financial life of our members.

Our 75th Anniversary

“In 2023, Riverfront will celebrate its 75th anniversary! Although the official date is in November, we’ll be thanking Berks County all year long by doing 75 gestures of goodwill as a part of our anniversary celebration campaign to benefit those in our local community as well as local non-profit service organizations. Plus, we’ll announce other exciting events and giveaways throughout the year. It’s our way of saying thank you for a wonderful 75 years!” – Tim McLeod President/CEO

Casual for a Cause

Casual Fridays are a way for staff to give back to the community since monetary proceeds for participation go to support local causes and not-for-profits in our area.


We want to make a difference in our community, and a big part of that includes sponsoring various events or sports teams whenever we can within Berks.

Quarterly Community Benefactor Program

Each quarter, Riverfront Federal Credit Union spotlights a special organization as a community non-profit partner. We donate funds raised during the quarter from swag sales and transaction round up donations to their cause and help spread their message of hope and positivity throughout the community.

Educational Awards

Riverfront Federal Credit Union is proud to offer financial support to college students to honor the memory of John G. Bernheiser, a past manager of Riverfront. Every year, we select five students to each receive a $2,000 educational grant towards an undergraduate study program at a qualifying institution.

Employee Volunteers

Every employee of Riverfront Federal Credit Union is encouraged to volunteer in the local community to gain “hands on” experience giving back to others by working together to improve the place we call home.

We encourage you to get involved. If you are aware of a group or individual in need of support, please send ideas or recommendations for our 75 gifts of gratitude by email to, or fill out and submit the form at the bottom of this page. Together we can help improve each other’s lives!

In 2023 Riverfront will perform 75 gestures of goodwill as a way to thank our members and the local community for contributing to our growth and success over the years. Be sure to bookmark this page as it will be updated regularly to include all the things we’re doing to celebrate 75 wonderful years of serving Berks County.
