Xplore FCU was federally chartered in 1947 and began providing a very limited array of financial services to a handful of employees at Shell Oil Company here in New Orleans. Since that time, we have grown to become one of the largest credit unions in the New Orleans area. Offering many products and services, Xplore FCU is now a community credit union, serving over 10,000 Members. Anyone living, working, worshiping or attending school in Orleans or Jefferson Parish is eligible for membership.

Why Credit Unions are Special and Different from Banks
Credit unions are uniquely different from banks because credit unions are not for profit financial institutions cooperatively owned and operated by its Members. Each Member is an equal owner and each has one vote in electing a volunteer board of directors. Credit unions can often offer more favorable rates and lower fees for services since they are not for profit. When you make the decision to become a Member of a credit union, you are becoming an owner.
