About Us

At WestStar, we take great pride in serving not only as an active economic driver in our region, but also in being a responsible corporate citizen. We want the best for our region, and it drives us to be actively involved in many civic organizations and non-profit agencies through volunteer service, charitable fund-raising, and sponsorships. Our Board of Directors is home to some of the Borderplex's largest charitable and civic supporters. As individuals, some of us sit as directors on boards, some serve as members, still others volunteer or contribute money. Regardless of our roles, we all share the commitment to serve.

Community Involvement

Our officers serve on over 75 boards and committees, and our team members also participate in numerous and varied community development efforts and philanthropic causes. Among the organizations we support are Candlelighters of West Texas/Southern New Mexico, Child Crisis Center, Hospice of El Paso, Junior Achievement of El Paso, Greater El Paso Chamber of Commerce, El Paso Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, YMCA of El Paso, YWCA of El Paso, United Way of El Paso County, Las Cruces Chamber of Commerce, Cowboys for Cancer Research, and many more. Additionally, for over twenty years, we have partnered with the Lower Valley Housing Corporation to provide affordable housing for low- to moderate- income families in El Paso County, Texas.

Community Reinvestment

We're committed to the success of underserved communities, and with expertise and leadership, helps local people and projects succeed. We carefully adhere to government regulations, including the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA). The CRA is intended to encourage depository institutions to help meet the credit needs of the communities in which they operate, including low- and moderate-income neighborhoods. Our record in helping meet the credit needs of our entire community is evaluated by the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas approximately every 2-2.5 years.

Since 2008, WestStar has earned four consecutive “Outstanding” CRA ratings from the federal government, for investing in its communities, especially underserved neighborhoods, and for providing unique solutions to underserved individuals.
