Our Story

D C C U groundbreaking photoWe officially opened our doors in 1959 as Waynesboro DuPont Employees Credit Union, Inc. Our first “office” was in the basement of an employee’s house who worked at the Waynesboro plant of E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Co. By the end of 1959, the credit union had 1,275 accounts, $72,827 in loans, $91,251 in assets, and had no paid employees.

Twenty years after its founding, the credit union was owned by over 7,000 members with nearly $32 million in assets. In 1985, the first office not on plant property was opened on West Main Street in Waynesboro.

By 1997, we expanded to become a community credit union, meaning membership became based on geography instead of only where someone worked. To reflect this growth, our name changed to DuPont Community Credit Union (DCCU).

As a member-owned financial cooperative, we believe in people - not profits. Your story is our story, and we're here for you every step of the way.

A key part of DCCU’s mission is a genuine commitment to our community. We strive to give back to our community the same way we serve our members every day – with a sincere dedication to affect real, lasting, and positive change in people’s lives. As a credit union, we have the responsibility of caring for the well-being of our members and the opportunity to better serve the community.

DCCU employees have not only supported these organizations financially, but also by volunteering:
