Firstrust Bank - The Official Bank of the Philadelphia Eagles!


Like so many of us, I’ll never forget that cold day in 2018, when the Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl championship parade turned up Broad Street. As the caravan crossed over Reed Street, I wondered what my grandfather, Samuel Green, would have thought of all this.

Samuel was a young Hungarian immigrant who came to this country at the turn of the century with just $12 in his pocket. The Great Depression was ravaging our nation, but he refused to be disheartened. He recognized a need in South Philadelphia that was not being fulfilled, and as a result, in his mother’s kitchen in 1934, he founded what is now Firstrust Bank. And, our business was established around the time the Philadelphia Eagles were born.

While I think Samuel would have been totally bewildered by the notion of us celebrating a world championship just a few blocks from where he started the bank, I believe he would have completely understood all of the hard work, sacrifice, grit, resilience, and determination that it took to get there. These were his values as well.

By staying true to his mindset and evolving as our community has, Firstrust has grown and prospered to where we are now―not only the largest family-owned financial institution in the region, but also one of the most consistent, top-performing banks in the country. In addition, we’ve recently been honored as one of the region’s Top Workplaces and recognized as the highest-rated customer service banking experience in the Philadelphia area.

Concurrently, the whole country has come to know what the Eagles―and Eagles fans―stand for: tenacity, competitive urgency, and fierce loyalty. We believe that these fans, and all good Philadelphians, deserve that same loyalty and passion from their bank, paired with the commitment to help them tackle challenges, overcome adversity, and ultimately, to fulfill their dreams.

While we view both the Eagles and Firstrust as world-class organizations in their respective fields, we are also joined in service beyond football and banking. We are focused not only on winning championships, but also being champions in the communities we serve―and we will now work together toward these goals as well.

Our Mission―to cultivate prosperity for our customers, communities, and employees―will continue, only more strongly enhanced by having the Birds by our side.

We are thrilled that Firstrust is now the Official Bank of the Philadelphia Eagles, and we look forward to a thriving partnership for years to come.

Go Birds. Go Firstrust.
