Our first 85 years
Since 1934 FVSBank has served the communities of the Fond du Lac, Oshkosh and Waupun area. As the community has developed and grown over this time, so has FVSBank grown. FVSBank had small beginnings back in 1934 as First Federal Savings and Loan Association. Its start in 1933/1934 was nothing more than an idea. In 1933, as the nation was slowly moving out of the strife-ridden depression, the City of Fond du Lac was showing signs of renewed progress and a few visionary men felt the time was right for the establishment of a new financial institution in the community.
Fifty men put up $100 each and signed an application asking the Federal government for permission to organize a Federal Savings and Loan Assocaition in Fond du Lac, The request was approved and FVSBank has blossomed into what it is today.
The first organizational meeting was on August 15, 1934. The first office was located in downtown Fond du Lac. What started as only an idea some 85 years ago, has developed into a major financial institution in the Fox Valley.
