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

Our proactive community involvement
We get involved in Blue hometowns in ways special to those communities. Here are just a few of the many things we do:
In Fort Collins
Blue is proud to serve as the presenting sponsor for Realities For Children NightLights and to help take a child out of the darkness of abuse. Every holiday season, the big blue NightLights tree located in the courtyard at First Presbyterian Church, on the corner of Mulberry & College in Fort Collins, lights up the night bringing awareness to the issues of child abuse and neglect and letting the children impacted know they are not alone. Nightlights serve as the biggest annual fundraiser for Realities for Children and every dollar raised goes toward meeting the needs of local children who have been abused, neglected or who are at-risk. Join us in making this your next holiday tradition and spend an inspirational evening with Blue & Realities For Children.
Blue employees and members raised $500 to support our partners at Realities for Children in Boulder County at the Annual Nightlights event.
Blue sponsored a bowling team for A Precious Child’s Bowl-A-Thon. Through this sponsorship A Precious Child was able to raise over $18,000 to support programs serving Colorado children in need. We also helped gather school supplies to Fill A Backpack for A Precious Child.
During the Lafayette Do Good Campaign, Blue donated $10,000 to the World of Wonder Children’s Museum. They used the funds to place a mural on the side of the building.
Amidst all the fun fall festivities, Blue participates and sponsors the Harvest Farm Fall Festival. The Fall Festival is sure to provide all a fun family-friendly day on the Farm, including a corn maze, pig races, petting zoo, wagon rides, and much more. As an extended operation of the Denver Rescue Mission, Harvest Farm is a 100-acre farm and rehabilitation center for men seeking to break the cycle of addiction and homelessness. Located in Wellington, Colorado, the farm accommodates up to 72 men who participate in their New Life Program. The program allows participants to pursue academic and vocational studies, covering topics such as resume building and interview skills. Through the New Life Program, Blue Federal Credit Union volunteers to provide Financial literacy seminars, covering debt elimination, budgeting, and banking.
Blue helped Mountain Family Center in Granby raise over $50,000 with our match donation campaign and gain several new donors with our outreach.
Blue donated relief bags to the Cheyenne Regional Medical Center
“To the front line in all of our communities, thank you! In Cheyenne we donated 75 relief bags to the local hospital, CRMC, as a small token of our appreciation for all that they have done and will do.”
We donated to several non-profits in the communities we serve, including Laramie’s BackPacks Against Hunger program with the Albany County School District. Their Do Good mission is to help kids who face hunger receive nourishment while at home. Although this is a national program, it is community-led and all donations go back into Albany County.
On F.E. Warren Air Force Base
Grocery stores across our communities are working tirelessly. To help them to protect themselves, we donated hand sanitizers to the workers at the commissary at FE Warren AFB.
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.
