About EFCU Financial
In the midst of the Great Depression in the 1930s, people sought relief from economic devastation. Credit unions began to develop across the U.S. with a shared motto of “People Helping People.” In response to this effort, Congress passed the Federal Credit Union Act in 1934. After, EFCU Financial was established in Baton Rouge, Louisiana as only the 13th chartered credit union in the entire country. One hundred seventy-eight original members invested a total of $941.70 to get the credit union off the ground. Our original name, Stanocola Processing Employee’s Federal Credit Union, reflected our charter’s sponsor and our mission – to manage the banking needs of our community’s new and growing middle class by providing financial services to the employees of Stanocola Processing Plant (now Exxon).
