UCCU FINANCIAL CENTER 60 YEARS OF STORIES CHARITY VOTING BYU BEGINNINGS SUPPORT LOCAL SCHOOLS

It all started with seven founders and $35

A lot has changed for UCCU over the past 60 years. Today, UCCU is over 137,000 members and $1 billion dollars strong. But one thing has stayed the same…our unwavering commitment to serving the individuals and families of Utah and helping people make smart financial decisions. 

So here’s a look back at an incredible 60th Anniversary Celebration…and a little reminder of a few opportunities that you can still take advantage of. 

Legendary BYU Head Football Coach LaVell Edwards hosted and narrated Built To Last, a special video that takes an inspiring look at UCCU and our community over the past six decades…from its BYU beginnings to a credit union that grew into an integral and important part of this community.  

 

UCCU Financial Center Building Ribbon Cutting

On October 12, 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 official ribbon as Lehi Mayor Bert Wilson said: “This is really one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve had the opportunity to be in.”

 

We asked you—our members—to share with us your personal stories and experiences with UCCU…and your response was nothing short of amazing. Thank you for the hundreds of stories that have inspired us, humbled us, and helped us understand even better how best to serve you. 

Along with congratulating the prize winners (who won a Smart Car, a family trip to Disneyland, and lots more), we want to thank each and every one of you that submitted stories. Learning these personal stories of how UCCU has helped your financial lives has had a significant and meaningful impact on all of us.

To celebrate 60 years together, we worked with you to provide cash donations to schools in Utah. For every loan that you transferred over to UCCU, we donated a .5% balance transfer cash rebate, up to $125 per loan, to public, private, and charter schools you chose.

In our 60 years together, we’ve worked with our members to build UCCU into one of the most progressive and fiscally stable financial institutions in the nation. Together, you donated a total of $18,923.89 to 127 schools across Utah!

Thank you for working with us to build our community, our schools, and our future.
