President's Message May 2016

JeffSermon_2015
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.

The credit union continues to celebrate 60 years of serving this great community! This year-long celebration will give members and the credit union many opportunities to strengthen the community and take advantage of special offers and services provided by the credit union. We welcome your participation and urge you to take advantage of the special offers, rates, and service opportunities that are part of our celebration.

  • Support the School of your Choice

Throughout the year, you can earn money and also support a local school of your choice – just by transferring an existing loan to UCCU!

When you transfer a loan from somewhere else to the credit union, you will not only benefit from lower loan rates and lower monthly payments – but UCCU will pay you ½% of the loan balance in cash up to $125. But that’s not all. The credit union will also send the school of your choice the same amount (1/2/% of the loan balance up to $125) in your name!  So, by moving a loan to UCCU, you’ll most likely end up with better loan rates and terms, some cash in your pocket, and the credit union will donate the same amount to a school of your choice in your name!

  • March Loan Sale Going on Now

You’ll find low special rates on auto loans and on home equity loans as part of our 60th Anniversary celebration. Whether its time to replace your car or whether you’re planning some needed home improvements or other summer projects, UCCU’s low loan rates will help you succeed.  There will be additional special offers throughout the year.

  • Your “First Choice” Financial Partner

As always, we thank you for your trust and your membership. Our sole focus, as a not-for-profit financial institution, is to provide you and your family with the services and information that will help you set- and reach- your financial goals. One valuable resource to help you make smart financial decisions is UCCURelax.com. This educational site is a great guide to help save you money and frustration in purchasing a home or car. Check it out and see how it can give you confidence in making some of life’s biggest purchases.

We love serving you and look forward to another 60 years of serving this community!

President’s Message February 2016

2016 marks the 60th anniversary of UCCU! In 1956 we began as BYU Credit Union on a stair landing in the Harold R. Clark building on Brigham Young University campus. Seven members compiled $35 in assets to invest in an innovative concept- a credit union. Built on the principles of a not-for-profit organization, credit unions focus on the concept of people helping people. Now, 60 years later we continue to focus on the same principles of helping people by inspiring smart decisions. As a member, you are the credit union. Below are some of the ways we will be celebrating with you this year.

Supporting Local Schools

Being a community credit union, we strongly believe in helping the members of our community and to celebrate we want to give back. We invite everyone in the community to transfer your existing loans to UCCU and in return we will give you a ½% cash back of the loan balance and we will donate the same amount to the Utah school of your choice! Our experienced loan officers can help you transfer your loan over quickly and easily. Visit uccu.com/60years for details.

Share Your Story

With 60 years of history, our members have some great stories about this cooperative organization working together to inspire smart decisions. The credit union is accepting written or video submissions about your experiences with UCCU and we’ll be giving away some amazing prizes: a Smart Car plus 60 the prizes including a trip to Disneyland, $600 in cash, iPad Pro, 60” TV, and much more. Visit uccu.com/60years for details.

Charity Donation with Your Help

We will be donating money to local charities that help support and improve our community. We will need your help in deciding who gets the money. More information will be coming soon at uccu.com/60Years.

Member Appreciation & Special 60th Year Celebration Loan Offers

There will be other giveaways and special loan offers throughout the year, more details to come!
