Originally established as “Bowie County Teachers Credit Union”, TEXAR has gone through several name changes, including “Bowie-Cass Teachers Credit Union” in 1964, the “Teachers Federal Credit Union” in 1996, and finally “TEXAR Federal Credit Union” in 2001, as it remains today.

Throughout their history, TEXAR strives to stay true to their mission: “To serve the financial needs of our members". As a not for profit financial cooperative, they are always looking for ways to enhance the benefits received by their membership. This is in stark contrast to profit goals and shareholder pressures that define traditional banks. At TEXAR, they analyze every aspect of their business to maximize value and to provide the highest possible dividend, as well as the most competitive loan rates. It is particularly rewarding when they can combine new technology and operational efficiencies.
