ROCHESTER, NH –  HRCU was recently ranked one of “America’s Best Credit Unions” by Forbes, a global media company with a focus on news and business. The full-service credit union with $420M in assets and 24,000 members ranked first in the state of New Hampshire. Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to survey consumers on service, financial advice, fee transparency, ease of website navigation, branch services, and level of trust they experience with their credit union or bank.

Founded in 1962 by eight parishioners from Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Church in Rochester, NH, the credit union’s mission was to assist people who had limited access to traditional financial services.

Today, HRCU is headquartered in Rochester with additional locations in Farmington, Dover, and Spaulding High School and offers membership to anyone who lives, works, goes to school, or worships in New Hampshire or York County, Maine.

“We’re humbled and honored to receive this award among the many standout credit unions that serve New Hampshire,” said Brian Hughes, HRCU President and CEO. “Receiving this meaningful recognition is a true testament to the trust our members have in us and to the dedication and hard work of our staff, board of directors and volunteers.”

HRCU is a responsible, community-centric organization that takes pride in helping non-profit organizations throughout the markets they serve. Dozens of non-profits over the years have benefitted from donations and countless HRCU staff volunteer hours. “The needs we see in our community is an opportunity for us to give back,” Hughes stated. “The credit union philosophy of People Helping People is alive and well at HRCU.”


HRCU (Holy Rosary Credit Union) is a state-chartered and federally insured community credit union serving more than 24,000 members throughout New Hampshire and York County, Maine. Established in 1962, HRCU has several branches in the NH Seacoast region with assets exceeding $420 million. HRCU prides itself on helping its members achieve their financial goals through convenient, technology-driven services and a compassionate, personalized approach.
