Celebrating 75 Years As YOUR Credit Union
Posted May 02, 2014
Voyage Federal Credit Union is pleased to announce the 75th anniversary of its organization. To kick off the celebration, we will be at The Hilton Garden Inn on May 20, 2014 here in Sioux Falls as part of its annual membership meeting. The event is open to all members, and we hope to see everyone!
We are excited to celebrate this milestone with members and friends throughout the community. While our founders wouldn’t recognize the ways we interact with our members today, the cooperative principles that were established when we opened our doors are still going strong. That’s a testament to the way we conduct business.
Things were a bit different in 1939, we were known as Sioux Falls Bell FCU and we only had 66 members. At the time, we offered loans with assets of $211 in deposits and $30 in loans. Fast-forward 75 years we now have assets in excess of $75 million, offer over 50 financial services to 10,200 members that can be found locally, nationally and internationally.
Voyage FCU has grown hand in hand with Sioux Falls. That’s why we want to give back to the community in ways beyond our products and service. We have recently been contributing both time and financial resources to organizations like The Avera Foundation, The Banquet, Children’s Home Society, Sioux Falls Area Humane Society, Sioux Falls Schools, and Habitat for Humanity.
We are anxious to find out what the next 75 years will bring! By being a member-driven organization, it’s really up to our members to decide. That’s part of what makes this place special. As always memberships are offered to anyone who lives, works worships or attends school in Lincoln or Minnehaha Counties in South Dakota.
