Every year, credit unions across the world come together during International Credit Union Week to celebrate the credit union difference and the positive impact that credit unions have on the members and communities they serve.  Credit unions worldwide work to provide the highest caliber of service to over 200 million credit union members.

One grant per school district will be awarded for grades 7 through 12. All subjects and topics are eligible. The grant monies can be used to support either a new or existing lesson plan.

Applications can be submitted online here, or you can get a paper application from your school principal. All applications must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. on 10/31/2014. Please contact Heidi Sochia at marketing@oucu.org or (740) 597-2853 with any questions.

Home Depot Data Breach

You may have heard about a data breach at Home Depot retail stores impacting credit and debit card information. Ohio University Credit Union takes these situations seriously, and protecting your account information is one of our highest priorities. Here are some things that may be helpful to know:

  • Cards that may be impacted are those used in Home Depot stores located within the U.S. and Canada beginning in April of 2014.  
  • Be assured that OUCU and our card vendor are actively monitoring the activity on your account. If we suspect fraud on your account, we will be reaching out to you and reissuing a new card.
  • You can monitor your credit card activity through our online credit card site and your debit card activity through CATS Online
  • You can set up account alerts in those previously mentioned sites to receive a text or an email each time your card is used.
  • Visa credit and debit cards are protected with Visa's Zero Liability Guarantee, which offers members liability protection against unauthorized purchases.

As always, please contact us at 1-800-562-8420, 597-2800 or memberservices@oucu.org if you notice unusual activity on your account.

Cell Phones for Soldiers Program

OUCU has partnered with GM and Invest in America to help collect old cell phones.

The donated phones are sent to ReCellular, which pays Cell Phones for Soldiers for each phone -- the money is used to purchase prepaid calling cards which are sent to troops.

Cell phone donations are accepted at both OUCU branches. You can even donate phones that are no longer in working condition -- they will be dismantled and recycled to reclaim some materials.
