Envision Credit Union is a full-service financial institution that serves as a financial partner for Leon, Gadsden, Jefferson, Wakulla, Liberty and Franklin county residents. On January 14, 1954, ten Leon County teachers applied to the Comptroller of the State of Florida for a Certificate of Organization so they could organize the Leon County Teachers Credit Union. Each teacher contributed $5.00 to fund the organization and on January 26, 1954, their application was approved.
We became North Florida Education Credit Union in 1979 and opened a branch in Quincy after a merger with the City of Quincy Employees Credit Union. In 1980, the Credit Union grew again as we merged with the Big Bend Telco Credit Union. As more surrounding counties were added to our field of membership in January of 2001, we adopted a new name that was inclusive of everyone—Envision Credit Union.
Envision Credit Union’s commitment to the education community has remained strong throughout our growth. Our robust involvement includes local Teacher of the Year programs, school/organization sponsorship and donations, classroom mini-grants, supporting retired educator groups, an annual academic planner, Envision’s School Involvement Program, Envision's Swipe For Schools Program, and the overall the support of the Leon County School District. Envision is also the title sponsor for the Best and Brightest Awards program. Through this program, Envision was able to provide more than 1,200 students with $413,000 in scholarships. Envision most recently provided $175,000 in June of 2012 to sustain the program through 2017.
