The readers have spoken!
We are so delighted to announce that Blue Federal Credit Union has been voted as Cheyenne’s Favorite Credit Union for the fourth year in a row! Every year, the Wyoming Tribune-Eagle asks over 14,000 readers in Laramie County to submit their votes for different business categories. The award actually dates back many years and after a decade hiatus, the Tribune reinstated the awards after popular demand from their readership.
Winning an award like this is such a big deal for everyone at Blue. We’ve been established in Cheyenne for almost 65 years and our devotion to this community is unparalleled. Our members are our owners, so they’re much more than just customers to us. Out of our nearly 83,000 members, we return an average of $98 per person in the form of dividends, making us the number one credit union for giveback across Wyoming and Colorado. Additionally, our staff devoted 2,700 volunteer hours in 2018 and are on track to surpass that figure this year.
Blue prides itself on giving dividends back to members. We outrank all other credit unions in the region by giving back an average of $98 per member every year!— Michele B. - VP of Public Relations at Blue
Our commitment to the Cheyenne community
We have a deep commitment to not just our members and staff, but also causes that strengthen Cheyenne’s community. Last year marked our 17th annual golf tournament for the benefit to the United Way of Laramie County. We were able to donate $27,000 raised by the tournament, which is our largest contribution yet. To date, we’ve given over $233,000 to this chapter of United Way that has been used for tremendous good.
We were also recently named Wyoming’s Best-in-State Financial Institution by Forbes in 2018. Of nearly 270 banks and credit unions announced across the nation, Blue was the only winner awarded in the state of Wyoming. Check out some of our other awards we’ve been honored to receive!
- Wyoming Tribune-Eagle Readers’ Choice Award (best credit union category)
- Wellington Chamber of Commerce’s Business of the Year
- Realities for Children Business of the Year (Fort Collins)
Even though Blue is the largest credit union headquartered in Wyoming, we recognize that our members have a lot of choices when it comes to not just their vote, but also where they do their banking. It’s a privilege to give so much back to those we serve, and it truly reinforces our mission of working hard, having fun and winning for our members!
