DFCU was chartered April 19, 1935 as the credit union for City of Jacksonville, Florida employees, and we are as proud of Jacksonville's growth as we are of our own. We began with 45 members and $225 in assets. Today we have 6,700 members and $53 million in assets.
Over the years, other select employer groups, including Shands Jacksonville and the Jacksonville Electric Authority (JEA) were added. In the past few years, our charter was expanded so that anyone who lives or works in Duval County, Florida can join us.
DFCU still follows the guiding principles of our founders, and of the credit union movement, believing in 'people helping people' and striving to help each member improve their financial well being.
