Blue is about people helping people
This isn’t just business, this is life. We want to spend our time, energy and money doing meaningful things that make a difference for the people and places we care about.
At heart, we’re optimists
We’re optimists, in part because Blue has a super positive culture and that’s who we attract, but mostly because every day we see the difference that one person can make, in his or her own life, family and community.
Every day, we see people take first steps towards a better financial future. Every day, we see our teammates doing sweet and unexpected things for others. Every day, we see people face tough life circumstances and triumph in finding a way to move forward. Every day, we see how kindness, creative problem solving, and a little bit of help can change someone’s life.
And we feel what it’s like, we feel the true power of being part of an organization that genuinely wants to do good, believes we can accomplish more together, and then makes it happen. That’s why we invest in your pursuit of life.
If you want to see more of something good, participate, contribute, share and celebrate it!—Michele Bolkovatz, Vice President of Marketing, Blue
Doing good for our members
- Financial good. We help you plan for the big-picture well-being of your family and use the right financial tools in the right ways for your specific situation and goals.
- Personal good. We go above and beyond to make sure you feel welcome, cared for and special to us. You can always come to us for help.
- Community good. We prioritize funding and volunteering for local non-profits and causes that our members care about. In fact, we even give our employees paid time off to volunteer!
Our proactive community involvement
Though the Blue Foundation we get involved Blue FCU hometowns in ways special to those communities. Here are just a few of the many things we do:
On F.E. Warren Air Force Base
We contribute nearly $20,000 to Warren activities each year, including hosting a military appreciation BBQ, youth events, and sponsoring Military Box Night, putting together care packages for members of the military in service overseas.
We sponsor family friendly Movies in the Park on the big screen in the summer, and we also partner with local non-profit Broomfield FISH, which helps provide food, transportation, rent and utility assistance, and mentoring for low-income people in need.
In Fort Collins and Wellington
Through our Do Gooders campaigns, we donated $100 to 300 new Blue members to use for something they felt passionate about. In turn, we donated a total of $30,000 to downtown beautification programs in both Fort Collins and Wellington in 2017.
We’ve sponsored Dog Dayz at Scott Carpenter Pool and the Cult Classics at Central summer movie series—think The Big Lebowski, Spaceballs, and Beetlejuice. We also volunteer to support KGNU community radio during their annual pledge drives.
Where our Do Gooders campaigns began, we donated $10,000 for the downtown public murals project. Our Laramie team is also especially active in community athletic events for good causes, such as Relay for Life and the Buddy Walk.
We have a lot of athletes and adventurers on Blue’s team, so we frequently participate in benefit events like the Wyoming Law Enforcement 5k run, as both as volunteers and runners. One of our biggest events, the Blue Federal Credit Union Foundation Golf Tournament, has over the years raised more than $189,000 for United Way of Laramie County.
In every Blue hometown
Our Prime Time Advantage Club, for Blue members 50 and finer, goes on downtown and regional adventures, ranging from baseball games and museum tours to movie days and holiday parties.
