60 years ago, seven BYU employees shared a vision of a not-for-profit financial institution that would be owned by the very people it served – individuals and families living in this community. In 1956, each of them contributed $5 of their own money and founded the BYU Employees’ Federal Credit Union on one simple industry
principle: “people helping people.”
Today, the name of that financial institution is Utah Community Credit Union. It’s over $1 billion dollars in assets strong and serves over 125,000 members with 18 locations
across Utah Valley… and counting.
And as we celebrate our 60th Anniversary, we do so with the knowledge that the
strength, success, and longevity of this credit union is founded on our unwavering
commitment to that same ideal of people helping people.
And that will never change.
We will always be not-for-profit. We will always be owned by our members. And
we will always be here to help inspire our members to make smart decisions that
will improve their financial lives.
We have some very special opportunities in store for our members and our
community during our 60th anniversary year. Right now, you can enter to win
a Smart Car or one of 60 other great prizes (like a trip to Disneyland, an Apple
watch, or a 60” Smart TV), when you submit a video or written narrative that shares
your UCCU story.
We’re also giving cash donations to local schools of your choice. Simply transfer
your existing loan(s) to UCCU. We’ll pay you a .5% balance transfer cash rebate,
up to $125, for every loan you transfer and we’ll donate that same cash rebate
amount to the school of your choice, in your name.
For all the details about these opportunities visit uccu.com/60years.
We wouldn’t be here without our members. This credit union started with only
seven people and today, it belongs to each and every one of us.
So from all of us here at Utah Community Credit Union… thank you! We are grateful
to be a part of this wonderful community.
