Amarillo Community Federal Credit Union began its service to the Amarillo community in January, 1945. The orginal charter name was Amarillo U.S. Employees Federal Credit Union, serving a small group of government employees working at the Bureau of Reclamation.
During the ensuing years, the credit union positioned itself to expand its service reach to include many other federal and state governmental agencies. In the early eighties, we began allowing select employee groups to join with us. We now serve 250 of these groups.
The most dramatic service change occurred in March, 1998 when our charter to serve all residents of Potter and Randall counties was approved. This is also the time we changed our name from Amarillo Federal Credit Union to Amarillo Community Federal Credit Union .
During the 65 years we have been in Amarillo, we have been a pioneer in bringing financial service to our membership. These efforts include being:
* The first credit union in the State of Texas to offer share draft accounts.
* A pioneer in offering both the MasterCard and VISA credit cards.
* Developing many innovative savings and loan products including Premier and FREE checking accounts and Saf-T-Line, Saf-T-Net, Saf-T-Builder Loan products with one of the lowest APR's and repayment requirements in the area.
Our history reflects our determination to bring to you, our present and potential members the best financial products available in the Amarillo marketplace. This determination is more clearly expressed in our Mission Statement which reads, "Amarillo Community Federal Credit Union is dedicated to providing superior financial services to its member-owners in a caring, professional way."
We invite you to take the opportunity to review the many products and services we offer and challenge you to find any better. We promise you the best and stand behind our promise.
