Tell us a little about your business/organization:  how did it begin; what are your services/products, etc.

Dover Federal Credit Union is a community-focused credit union based out of Dover, Delaware. We started in 1958 in a small medical closet on the Dover Air Force Base and have since grown to 8 locations across Delaware. We currently serve close to 44,000 members and over 200 workplace partners. We offer a great variety of accounts that include but are not limited to: checking, savings, youth savings, IRAs, Share Certificates, auto loans, personal loans, credit cards and mortgages. Being a credit union means that everything we do is for the benefit of our members and our community.

Tell us about your role in the business/organization.

My role at DFCU is unique because I get to have my hand in an assortment of things. For example, I’m involved in our social media marketing, digital marketing and also deal with the creation and distribution of our print marketing. I also participate in teaching financial literacy for our community partners, something that we don’t charge extra for. If you regularly attend events in the central Delaware area, you have probably seen me working a table event for Dover Federal as well.

Tell us something that makes your business/organization unique. 

I believe the best part of our organization and the part that makes it unique is that we are Not-For-Profit. That simply means everything we make after we have taken care of all of our expenses are given back to our members and reinvested into the community. It makes coming to work every day worth it when I know that I am working for the greater cause of everyone around me.

What do you see for the future of your business/organization?

I see Dover Federal Credit Union being bigger than it is now in our future. With 8 locations spread out in Kent and New Castle County, its safe to say we have a great footprint in Delaware but there’s always room to grow. We have a great leadership team here and I have faith they can take us to new heights if that is what is best for the organization.

How has the Chamber helped your business/organization grow?

The best advice I have to other businesses and organizations is to network. I always tell people that if there’s an event to go to and you have the ability to go, go to it. You never know who you will meet or run into there. Your next customer or business partner could be there but if you don’t go, you will never know. My last word of advice is just making sure everything you do is for the right reason. Good things happen to good people.
