Fitzsimons Credit Union expands membership eligibility to Adams, Arapahoe and Denver Counties.
Aurora, CO – Fitzsimons Federal Credit Union has expanded its field of membership to those who live, work, worship, or attend school in Adams, Arapahoe, and Denver Counties in the state of Colorado. Upon receiving approval from the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), the Fitzsimons Board of Directors unanimously approved this change to its charter effective Tuesday, September 29, 2020.
Having helped people build solid financial futures for over 65 years, Fitzsimons has walked its members down the path to financial independence many times over, including those who are often unbanked or underbanked. “This expansion will allow us to serve more members of the Colorado community that we could not serve before. We provide innovative savings and loan programs that are not typically offered by much larger financial institutions”, Fitzsimons’ President & CEO Robert M. Fryberger Jr. said.
Fitzsimons is one of three credit unions in Colorado designated as a Juntos Avanzamos (Together We Advance) financial institution, marking its dedication to serving Colorado’s significant Hispanic population. The credit union has also signed on to the Credit Union Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Collective Pledge stating its commitment to listen, learn, advocate, and amplify the voices of the underrepresented and underserved members of our community to create a better society for all.
Chartered in 1955 to serve civilians employees and military personnel working or stationed at the Fitzsimons Army Medical Hospital and still headquartered on what is now the Anschutz Medical Campus, Fitzsimons Credit Union currently has over $200M in assets, more than 20,000 members, two branches, and 6 ATMs. The credit union has a comprehensive digital services offering and participates in the CO-OP shared branching network. Fitzsimons offers both traditional banking products and services as well as a wide selection of educational tools and resources to guide its members towards financial wellness.
