Our History

For over 60 years Dannemora Federal Credit Union has been serving our community. DFCU was organized in 1958 by a group of employees of the Dannemora State Hospital interested in creating a place where they and fellow employees could save and borrow money safely, confidentially, and at fair rate of return.

As our membership has grown, our field of membership has also expanded over the years. The credit union's field of membership now includes anyone who lives, works, attends school, or worships in Clinton, Essex, Franklin, or St. Lawrence Counties in New York.

Our Mission

Our mission is to be our members primary financial institution by providing quality services, exceeding member expectations, and supporting our local community.
