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 Beginnings
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.

60 Years of Stories
We asked you, our members, to share with us your personal stories and experiences with UCCU, and your response was nothing short of amazing! We value your thoughts, and are humbled by the stories that were shared. We’d like to thank everyone to shared their story, and we’d like to invite you to read them at www.uccu.com/stories.
UCCU Financial Center: Now Serving YouOn 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!
