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 more than 10,000 members.

The Credit Union Difference
How is a credit union different than a bank? Credit unions are not-for-profit organizations that exist to serve their members. Like banks, credit unions accept deposits, make loans and provide a wide array of other financial services. But as member-owned and cooperative institutions, credit unions provide a safe place to save and borrow at reasonable rates.
Credit unions are owned and controlled by the people, or members, who use their services.
Credit unions operate to promote the well-being of their members.
The cooperative structure of credit unions creates a cycle of mutual assistance towards the common goal of the financial well-being of members.
Profits made by credit unions are returned back to members in the form of reduced fees, higher savings rates and lower loan rates.
In essence, it's THEIR bank but it's YOUR Credit Union!
We currently have three locations to serve you better:
To deliver the highest level of personal financial services to our members in a unique, friendly, and superior manner; to meet the financial needs of the underserved in our communities; to encourage thrift, savings, and the prudent use of credit; to provide sound financial management in order to maintain earnings for our continued growth; and to provide our employees with a challenging, inspiring, and rewarding career.
