Filled with decades of history, serving as a silent witness to the birth of relationships, and hosting countless celebrations La Borde House is a focal point of our communities rich saga. A symbol of the resilience and grandiosity of Starr County the hotel continues to serve as the catalyst to our historical preservation and tourism endeavors.
For over 100 years, the doors to La Borde House have been open to welcome visitors and patrons to the most frequented location in this area. Unfortunately, the trying economic times our country has faced have not left La Borde House unscathed. The reduction in travel budgets for many public and private entities has resulted in a significant negative impact for the hotel. As a non-profit organization supported solely by rentals and donations, these cuts in revenue have prompted the implementation of many difficult cost saving measures. We have additionally established exciting new partnerships to promote and resurrect the passion for preserving this essential piece of our community. One of our prevalent advocates and contributors, Mrs. Miriam S. Vale, passed away last year and as one of her final requests asked that contributions be made to La Borde House. We hope that many of you find inspiration in her support and actively participate in the conservation of this and many other landmarks. We welcome you to stop by and encounter a vision of majestic splendor that transports you back in time. Be part of the effort and donate to the continued preservation and restoration of this magnificent treasure that belongs to you- Starr County.

LA BORDE HOUSE FUNDRAISING
Your everyday banking can help in the continued preservation of beautiful La Borde House. As a non-profit organization supported solely by rentals and donations we are excited BBVA Compass selected La Borde House as one of the organization to participate in the Compass For Your Cause Campaign. Here is how it works:
- Open a BBVA Compass Checking Account and tell the bank that you want to participate in Compass For Your Cause using Affinity Code 103804 Compass will donate $50 to the La Borde House on your behalf.
- Each time you use the BBVA Compass Visa Check Card (tied to your new account) for a signature-based transaction (use it like a credit card, not with a PIN) La Borde House gets .25% of the transaction at no cost to you.
Or if you are already a Compass Bank member, you can still associate your account to La Borde House and register your existing check cards so that La Borde House gets the residual 0.25% of your transactions. Simply contact the bank by going in or calling them.
