Beacon Federal Credit Union was chartered as DuPont La Porte Federal Credit Union in March of 1949. The credit unions’ goal is to create “Success through Service” by providing courteous, efficient, and sound financial services for its members. In 2005, we were granted a community charter and officially changed our name to Beacon Federal Credit Union in order to better reflect our varied membership base. The name “Beacon” underscores our commitment to look out for our members’ financial well-being now, and in the future.
Over the past 66 years, the not-for-profit credit union has evolved into a full service, financial institution. Offering an array of member-focused products and services including savings, checking, a variety of loans, overdraft protection, Courtesy Pay, debit cards, MasterCard and VISA credit cards, VISA Check Card, and more. Each of the over 16,000 members are equal owners of the credit union; which currently has assets totaling over $140 million dollars. Once a member of the credit union, you are a member for life. Your family is also eligible to take advantage of the benefits of membership. Everyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school, in our newly designated field of membership, is eligible, and welcome, to join us! You will experience professional, friendly, service where everyone is treated like a part of our extended family. And, since we are locally owned and operated, all loan decisions are made here by professionals who not only know you, but care about your financial well-being!
The credit union currently has six locations. The main office is at 2901 Sens Road La Porte, TX and a branch office at 2812 N. Alexander Road Baytown, TX. Both offices are full service, not for profit, financial institutions offering ATM’s, safe deposit boxes, Financial Service Representatives (FSRs) and Certified Financial Counselors on-site, tellers that offers efficient, courteous service that sets us apart from other financial institutions. In 2006, we made Beacon FCU even more convenient by adding a store front location in the Miramar Plaza in Seabrook, TX. In addition to our growth, we were proud to have a presence in the Clear Lake area by adding our fourth location at 1235 Clear Lake City Blvd in 2012; which then transferred to a branch inside a H-E-B grocery store in Clear Lake. In the spring of 2015, Beacon FCU was approached by the Goose Creek Memorial High School administrators with an opportunity to be a part of their Global Business Academy. Two student interns were hired to perform simple financial transactions and daily activities and are supervised by full-time, seasoned credit union staff. The GCM High School branch is only open to faculty/staff and students of the school. In the fall of 2015, Beacon FCU continued to grow it’s branch operations. The credit union opened its first in-store branch in Deer Park, Texas at a newly constructed H-E-B Grocery store located at 4701 East Blvd. then later in February of 2016 we opened another branch in the H-E-B Grocery store located at 3501 Clear Lake City Blvd. Clear Lake Texas.
Community involvement is important to our management and staff. The credit union is involved in our local school districts, the La Porte, Baytown, and Hispanic Chambers of Commerce, the La Porte Livestock Show, the Baytown Youth Fair, the La Porte Police Officer’s Association, high school CU4 Reality Fairs and much, much more.
The world is always changing. Beacon FCU is ready for the future with the right technology and products, but one thing that will always remain the same is our high-level of personal, professional service – Serving YOU is our Priority!
