Azura Credit Union was formed by a merger of equals. In May 2016, Quest Credit Union and Educational Credit Union merged.

History of Educational Credit Union

Educational Credit Union was formed in 1939 as Topeka Teachers Credit Union by a group of educators. The credit union started with just 29 members and $144 in total assets. At the time of merger, Educational Credit Union boasted over 24,000 members, with over $208 million in total assets. 

History of Quest Credit Union

Quest Credit Union was founded in 2010 with the merger of Credit Unions United (1951) and Credit Union One of Kansas (1956.) Their membership roots run deeply with The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, Bell Telephone, State of Kansas Employees and more. At time of merger, Quest had over 23,000 members, with over $274 million in total assets. 

Going Forward, and Above and Beyond

As Azura Credit Union, the merger expanded services and opportunities for members, while providing efficiency and technology benefits. Between both credit unions, we have over 140 years of serving our Kansas members and surrounding communities.
