Doig/Bergengren established credit union celebrates 90 years

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (May 26, 2021) — In 1931, Herbert Hoover was president, a loaf of bread was less than ten cents, and the Farm Bureau Employees Credit Union was formed by members of the Farm Bureau Federation. Over the years, the credit union became Hoosier Farm Bureau CU, and in 2013 after a merger with IKIBEW FCU, it became Hoosier United CU.

“Our credit union has a great origin story,” said CEO Jennifer Mulligan. “It was formed by credit union pioneer Thomas Doig with guidance from another pioneer, Roy Bergengren, when they came through Indiana as part of their nationwide work to establish credit unions. Many of those small credit unions are not around any longer, but we are $26.8 million and going strong!”

To celebrate this milestone, the credit union is offering a loan special, and it held a birthday party on the founding date of May 26. They are also collecting member feedback for Nine Acts of Kindness – one for each decade of the credit union’s existence. These acts will be performed over the summer.

The original articles of incorporation hang on a wall at Hoosier United CU.
