Borger Federal Credit Union
Merging for a Brighter Future
About the Merger
Borger FCU has a long-tenured history of providing excellent financial products and services to their members. The merger with Santa Fe FCU allows those products and services to be enhanced, while still keeping the things you love about your credit union. Both credit unions have deep roots in similar industries, making this a perfect fit. We understand that change is never easy, but we want you to know that the staff at both Borger FCU and Santa Fe FCU are here to help make this transition as smooth as possible!
Current Borger Federal Credit Union members can cast their votes inside the branch or at the special meeting on November 10th. We encourage every member to vote and ask a staff member if you have any questions about the merger.

Will my favorite staff members be replaced?
Definitely not! You will see some staffing changes due to employee retirement, but existing staff will actually see enhanced employee benefits after the merger.
Will our voices still be heard?
Member feedback is always welcome! Two additional Board of Directors positions will also be added for Borger FCU members during this transition. This will ensure that we have representation from our Borger members and understand the needs of the community. If you are interested in serving on the Board of Directors or the Supervisory Committee, please contact the credit union to get more information.
What happens next?
It's time to vote! Members can cast their votes in the branch starting September 23rd or at the special meeting that will be on November 10th at 5:30PM inside the Borger FCU branch. We encourage you to bring up any questions or concerns with the staff prior to voting so that you are fully informed to make a decision. If the merger is approved by member vote, we will be working the next several months to make this a smooth transition. Borger FCU will still be Borger FCU, just with the larger backing of Santa Fe FCU and some new colors. We know that change can be tough, but we hope that you can get as excited as we are about this new opportunity to be your local financial institution.
