Our 60th Anniversary in Review

We started with seven founders and $35. A lot has changed over the past 60 years, but we’ve held on to our unwavering commitment to help our members and our community! In case you missed any of the events, giveaways, or announcements, here’s a quick review of what happened this year:

Remembering Our BYU Beginningscelebrating 60 years with BYU Creamery ice cream
UCCU was originally founded by BYU employees, right on BYU campus. So, to celebrate our BYU beginnings, we gave our members free ice cream from the BYU Creamery!

Built to Last
Another way we commemorated our BYU beginnings was Built to Last, a special video narrated by LaVell Edwards, that takes an inspiring look at UCCU and our community over the past six decades.

UCCU Financial Center: Now Serving YouUCCU Financial Center Building Ribbon CuttingOn October 12th, 2016, we celebrated the opening of the UCCU Financial Center in the heart of Lehi. A ribbon cutting ceremony kicked off a series of Open Houses that were free to the public. Mike Orme, Chairman of The UCCU Board of Directors, cut the ribbon. Lehi Mayor Bert Wilson said, “This is really one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve had the opportunity to be in.”

Celebrate 60 Years with 6%
To top off our 60th Anniversary, we wanted to give our members a chance to get a great rate on a credit card. Right now, you can get the incredibly low rate of 6% on our Visa credit card. This is a low variable rate that will stay low, and there are no introductory rates – ever! But this rate ends with our anniversary celebration, so act fast!

Here’s to 60 years of people helping people! And many, many more years to come of inspiring smart decisions!

At Utah Community Credit Union we are proud of our beginnings. If you haven’t heard by now, we are celebrating our 60th anniversary this year, and everyone in our community is invited to the party!

This isn’t a party with balloons and streamers. Better yet, our celebrations include gifts that keep on giving! Starting September 1st, and through the end of the year, UCCU’s Visa Credit Cards will offer a base rate starting at 6.0%*.

While everyone else has high interest rate credit cards, come celebrate our anniversary by taking advantage of this great rate!

*Credit card variable Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is based on the Prime Rate published in the Money Rates column of the Wall Street Journal. We will use the most recent index value available as of the 15th day of the month prior to any rate adjustment. If the index value is not already rounded we then round up to the next .25%. To determine the annual percentage rate that will apply to your account, we add a 2.5% margin to the value of the Index. Limited time offer. Federally insured by NCUA.
