First Basin Credit Union not only serves as the financial partner to more than 25,000 members, but we also diligently serve the community. First Basin shows support to more than 40 nonprofit organizations dedicated to promoting our youth and education.
It is our goal to contribute to our community through volunteerism and sponsorship of events – we also seek to educate our youth on the importance of fiscal responsibility. First Basin staff and senior management volunteer their time through Junior Achievement of the Permian Basin to teach personal finance classes to students throughout all six of the high schools in Midland and Odessa.
In 2019, FBCU was proud to sponsor “Adopt a Star” to benefit High Sky Children’s Ranch for the seventh year. In partnering with our fellow community crusaders, more than 180 children across West Texas had their Christmas wishes fulfilled. For the fourth year, First Basin also sponsored the City of Odessa Parks and Recreation Starbright Village, featuring more than 300,000 lights and holiday themed displays that families enjoyed for free throughout the season.
We have our “Guns Up” as a Corporate Partner of Texas Tech University. FBCU is also a Corporate Partner of UT Permian Basin Athletics and the exclusive home of the UTPB debit and credit card to show support to our local university.
We are grateful to our members for recognizing our commitment to the community and for voting First Basin “Best Credit Union” in the Odessa American 2019 Reader’s Choice “Best of the Permian Basin”. First Basin also received silver recognition in the Midland Reporter Telegram “Reader’s Choice Awards” for Best Credit Union, Finance Company, Best Loan Company, and Best Employer – Less than 100 Employees.
