Our History

BankFund is dedicated to serving the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund Community

Become a Member


In 1947, employees of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund came together to create a convenient and affordable way to save and borrow—and the Bank-Fund Staff Federal Credit Union (BFSFCU) also referred to as BankFund, was chartered.

More than seven decades later, BankFund serves the employees, consultants, and contractors of the World Bank Group (WBG), the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and their families and household members. We tailor our products and services to meet the unique needs of our multi-national members, and we remain true to our original mission of providing the best value available in financial services to our member-owners.

We thank you for the privilege of serving your financial needs and encourage you to invite your family, household members, and colleagues to join BankFund so that they may enjoy the same benefits available to you. Membership at BankFund means a lifetime value because “Once a Member, Always a Member”.
