Our Beginning

In 1934, Samuel A. Green opened the doors of the first branch in South Philly, at the height of the Great Depression, under the name First Federal Savings and Loan of Philadelphia. Now a full-service commerical bank, Firstrust serves business owners and entrepreneurs throughout eastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and Delaware.

Family Owned

Firstrust has been family-owned and part of the community for 85 years. Three generations of the Green family - Samuel A., Daniel B. and Richard J. - have been at the bank's helm during that time. Their legacy has been one of stability and strength.
Our History

A Classic Success Story

The history of Firstrust and the Green family is a classic American and Philadelphia success story. Samuel A. Green, one of eight children, was born and raised in a small Hungarian farming town, where his father was the village cobbler. Sam joined his family in Philadelphia in 1905, putting down roots and quickly becoming involved in the local community. Sam's experiences during the Great Depression helped him develop a strong sense of survival and resiliency and a flexible and analytical mind.
 
In these times, commerical banks would not extend mortgages easily, making it virtually impossible for ordinary Philadelphians to own a home. Recognizing the opportunity to support the needs of the community, Sam deccided to start a savings and loan. He was able to raise the $7,000 needed to acquire the necessary federal charter from neighbors and his own savings.

With Pride

Our Commitment to Community

At Firstrust, excelling as a bank is only one part of the mission. A culture of caring for the vitality and welfare of the community is an equally important element of the bank's identity and history. Every yera the bank generously gives back by supporting charities that focus on education, children, health and housing. The bank also supports community events such as Southampton Days, Gladwyne's Memorial Day Parade and Variety - the Children's Charity.

Firstrust employees also make a significant contribution of both their time and talents to help others.
Now in its 50th year, the Samuel A. Green Scholarship Program, a high school essay contest, has awarded more than $1 million in college scholarships to more than 1,000 graduating high school students.

In all, the bank is proud to support over 300 non-profit organizations in the Delaware and Lehigh Valleys.
