Lafayette Federal Credit Union's new website

We’re excited to announce the launch of Lafayette Federal Credit Union’s new website!

Since 1935, Lafayette Federal has sought to provide members with a safe and convenient place to save, and to offer deposit and loan accounts at rates and terms more favorable than those of other financial institutions. With assets over $1.8 billion and over 56,000 members worldwide, Lafayette Federal operates eight full-service branch offices in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia.

Creating a partnership for continual improvement

The website is built using flexible WordPress templates that empower the Lafayette Federal marketing team to update rates, product pages, photos, blog, and other information as needed.

“We’re committed to empowering our members to take control of their finances, and our new website is just one way we’ve worked to make that a reality,” says Andrew Doepping, Lafayette Federal’s VP of Member Relations & Marketing. “From day one, working with PixelSpoke was a smooth experience. They were aligned with our vision to offer an improved, yet familiar site that remained true to our brand while boosting the online experience. We are pleased to have collectively accomplished this and more — banking with our credit union is more convenient and accessible than ever before.”

Moving forward, Lafayette Federal  and PixelSpoke look forward to continuing their partnership to further evolve the website and better support the financial well-being of Lafayette Federal members.
