About Us

Our History

As a member-owned, not-for-profit cooperative, Fort Worth City Credit Union was chartered in 1929 with the basic premise of offering generous rates of return on share accounts, low-interest loans, and useful financial services to help our members get more out of their hard earned dollars, and out of life.
Our status as not-for-profit sets us apart from other types of financial institutions.  It means that we work daily to provide each and every member with the time and money saving opportunities.  With more than 87 years of service, today the Credit Union has over $190 million in assets and offers a long list of financial tools to help members and their families build for financial success.


With a minimum of a $25.00 deposit, eligible persons may join the credit union. Your membership entitles you to a vote and a voice in the daily operations. You have the option to elect volunteers to serve on the board of directors which sets policies and establishes bylaws.
After paying all operating expenses, credit union profits are returned to members in the form of higher returns on savings, lower rates on loans, and a variety of fee-free or low-cost services.

Mission Statement

To build, protect, and improve this credit union by providing a full range of contemporary financial services to our field of membership, while maintaining the credit union’s long term financial stability and integrity.  Fort Worth City Credit union is owned and controlled by the membership for whose benefit it exists.

FWCCU now able to serve more citizens!

Fort Worth City Credit Union has expanded our charter to include persons who live, work, attend school or worship in Tarrant, Denton, Johnson, Parker and Wise counties, and the family members of such persons. The most significant impact of this change lies in FWCCU’s potential to expand, grow, and provide additional services to our members.

As a member of Fort Worth City Credit Union, you will see no difference in the quality of service we offer. We pledge to continue providing you with the same excellent service you have come to know and expect from FWCCU. Please tell your friends, family and neighbors to join FWCCU and experience the credit union difference.
