The First Pioneers Federal Credit Union is located in Lafayette, Louisiana. Lafayette is the center of Acadiana- an area culturally influenced by the people of Acadian descent who have strong French/Catholic traditions, language and customs. The area is now racially and culturally diverse. What was once a sleepy little southern rural town has grown into a vibrant and thriving center for oil, education, arts and culture and medical, legal and professional services. The music, food and culture make Lafayette and the rest of Acadiana a mecca for tourists and an outstanding home for its citizens.
If you live in Acadiana as we do, you know what a special place it is. We are an integral part of the community and we support all of the fantastic qualities that this community has to offer. If you are not presently living in Acadiana, just stick with us and we will let you know what is going on.
“Have you ever wondered why First Pioneers FCU has candy for sale in the lobby or drive thru? FUNDRAISING for CULAC. We are a member of the Louisiana Credit Union League, and as a member we work with other credit unions to educate our lawmakers about our industry. We support elected officials who support credit union issues.
FPFCU also supports LARC ( Lafayette Association of Retarded Citizens) by selling raffle tickets for their annual fundraiser. The proceeds of the raffle help fund programs for the mentally and physical disabled citizens in the Lafayette area.
We are proud to support these organizations to help make our community a better place….”
