About Us

From Humble Beginnings

The original charter signed on June 25, 1956Oregon Community Credit Union was founded more than 50 years ago in Eugene by a small group of passionate people. Years of taking great care of our members and providing the best possible financial services has made us the second largest state-chartered credit union in Oregon. Today, OCCU has over 100,000 members. Most are Oregonians and live in one of the 28 counties we serve. Others, however, have spread their wings and can be found all over the US and even abroad, keeping their membership active through our online services and Shared Branching programs. See if you qualify for membership today and start on the path of something NICE. Remarkably Nice.

We base our growing success on an unwavering commitment to two things:

  1. Keeping Oregon strong by investing in our members and our communities
  2. Providing exceptional, personalized service in everything we do

On your side today, tomorrow and always

Our goal is to be your lifelong financial partner. We want to help you make healthy, long-term financial decisions. To do that, we ask questions. We listen. We suggest products and services that meet your needs. Then, we fill those needs with a full range of savings and checking accounts, direct deposit, auto loans, mortgages, certificate accounts, investment services (through LPL Financial*), and more.

Not-for-profit

The ribbon cutting from the opening of our corporate officesLike all credit unions, we are not-for-profit. We exist solely to serve you, our members, and our communities. In fact, each Oregon Community Credit Union member owns a share. This makes you an owner and the reason behind everything we do.

What happens to the money we earn? Once operating expenses are met, we return profits to you and other members in the form of higher interest on savings, lower interest rates on loans, and valuable new products and services. It’s not how banks do it, but it’s what makes us…well, us.

Do good deeds

When you join Oregon Community Credit Union, your money works for you and for the community. That’s something you can feel good about. We invest in and volunteer to improve the communities we serve. Through our Community Outreach for Employees Program, we support community service, paying our employees for volunteering with the non-profit organizations or schools of their choice. In addition, throughout the year our employees organize events to raise funds for local chapters of charities like the American Cancer Society, United Way, Children’s Miracle Network and the American Red Cross. In fact, Oregon Community Credit Union has received the Credit Union Association of Oregon’s first place Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Recognition Award for implementing socially responsible projects in our communities.
