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!

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.
