This week’s Featured Member Business is Western Rockies Federal Credit Union. Western Rockies Federal Credit Union has been serving and empowering Western Colorado for over 83 years. In 1936, the credit union began as the Mesa County Teacher’s Federal Credit Union, founded by 29 educators with less than $200 in assets. The credit union served School District 51 Employees and Staff, and in the ensuing decades, we grew to serve other membership groups in Mesa, Garfield, Pitkin and Eagle Counties. As they continued to thrive, they stayed focused on providing their members with financial solutions, education, and expert advice.

The Fruita Branch is the newest branch, and they are thrilled to be a part of the caring, fun, and supportive Fruita community. Their mission to empower their members in Fruita through expert financial advice and first-class service. If you live, work, or worship in Fruita and have not yet visited the Fruita Branch, stop in! Come meet the friendly staff and allow them to help you to obtain your financial goals and live your life to the fullest through all your life’s greatest adventures.

Today, the Western Rockies Federal Credit Union mission is to serve all Western Colorado, and vest in their valued members.
