During the Del Rio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (DRHCC) Annual Gala on Friday, Dec. 5, Border Federal Credit Union (BFCU) received recognition for its 60 years of service to the Del Rio, Texas, community.

Every year local businesses and professionals are recognized for their community involvement by a specially selected DRHCC committee. BFCU said they are honored to receive this prestigious award and look forward to being a part of the continued growth and prosperity of this community.

In attendance to receive the award were Maria J. Martinez, BFCU’s President/CEO, and members of the board of directors, management, and staff.

On Feb. 25, 1954, a group of local Del Rio citizens drew up articles of incorporation for Border Credit Union. They contacted the State Banking Commission, and on April 2, 1954, the credit union state commissioner approved the Border Credit Union charter. Border Credit Union later obtained a federal charter, in April 1987, and added the word “Federal” to its name.

BFCU’s first office was located inside Laughlin Air Force Base, and its field of membership was predominately federal employees. Then in 1980, a community charter was awarded that enabled BFCU to expand services to other underserved areas.  BFCU now serves 13 Texas counties.

In the past 60 years, BFCU has evolved into a strong, prosperous institution assisting member-owners with their financial needs. BFCU’s goal is to continue to offer excellent, affordable, and convenient financial services.
