In 1975, Batavia Federal Credit Union was chartered a community credit union. This credit union began as a Council of Churches project in an effort to provide basic financial services to people with minimal financial means. An early benefactor and major supporter of Batavia Federal Credit Union was P. W. Minor & Son, Inc. The company had offered payroll deduction to its employees and was resolute that the credit union should survive to maintain the financial relationships enjoyed by their employees.
