Chartway FCU branches are located in Florida, Georgia, Rhode Island, Texas, and Virginia (also in Utah under the HeritageWest Credit Union name and Utah, Nevada, and Arizona under the SouthWest Community Credit Union name – see below for further details about joining under one of these alternative credit unions).

It will then give you the option to join the We Promise Foundation and make your 1-time $10 donation to qualify for membership with Chartway FCU.
Membership also requires a $5 deposit into a Prime Share savings account.
