About Us

The mission of Barksdale Federal Credit Union is to enhance the financial well-being of its members and become the preferred financial partner for members and potential members.

History

In 1954, Barksdale Federal was established to serve military and civilian personnel at Barksdale Air Force Base in Bossier City. While continuing to proudly serve the men and women, and their families, of Barksdale Air Force Base, we now serve over 1000 companies, associations, and churches. We are extremely excited about our opportunity to serve all people who live, work, worship or go to school in Bossier, Caddo, Webster, Grant, Rapides and Allen parishes by providing financial products and service delivery to enhance their economic well-being, including those of modest means. Barksdale Federal Credit Union was built on that foundation. That foundation is as important today as it was in 1954 and remains to be what differentiates us from other financial institutions. With assets exceeding $2 billion, we are the largest locally owned credit union in Louisiana and proudly serving Texas!
