About Us

Vision Financial Federal Credit Union was originally established by GTE in 1960 and was known as Gentelco Federal Credit Union. Gentelco FCU was a full-service financial cooperative dedicated to serving its members.  Gentelco FCU’s original mission of placing people above profits and delivering top-notch member service remains Vision Financial FCU’s primary objective some 50+ years later. 

Vision Financial FCU (VFFCU) began expanding its field of membership to include many other diverse groups and now serves over 100 select employer groups.  In 2013, VFFCU was awarded an underserved designation in the City of Durham allowing us to extend our products and services to many who reside, work, or worship in Durham.  Today, Vision Financial FCU is proud to serve nearly 10,000 members.

If you are a new member, you will soon learn of the many free, low-cost benefits complementing your membership.   If you’re considering joining our Credit Union, give us a call or stop by a branch today to feel valued as a member-owner of our Credit Union.
