Together, we can do more

The Blue Foundation is an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization founded to help Blue Federal Credit Union and our members fulfill our Do Good mission. We champion, fund and celebrate local nonprofit causes that keep our community and people strong, financially stable and healthy. The Blue Foundation also helps make tax-deductible charitable giving easy for you.

We match your donations

Whether your donation is $10 or $10,000, 100% of your donation goes to important local causes and scholarships AND your donation is matched by up to 80% by the Blue FCU, amplifying your positive impact. Last year, that added up to more than $150,000 given back to Blue hometown communities in Wyoming and Colorado. Join us in doing good.

Together, we really can do more

  • Ask us for funding—or volunteers

    We love a good cause. And we love it when Blue members hit us up for money, volunteers or sponsorship for local nonprofit causes they care about. Why? Because when people speak up and ask for help in specific ways, it’s a lot easier to take action!

    Contact the Blue Foundation to ask about support for a cause that’s important to you.

    While we have a special focus on financial literacy programs, we always do our best to find a way to help a good cause.

    Set up your own scholarship

    If you’d like to set up a scholarship fund as a memorial, part of estate planning, or simply because it fits your values, the Blue Foundation and our partners at Blue would be delighted to help you do that. We can even help with promoting and managing the application process.
