Give and Grow!

Ohio University is proud of the credit union difference, especially being involved in our community! We have partnered with these six local charities to help support their efforts to strengthen our community:

Passion Works Studio

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Athens

Athens County Humane Society

Athens County Food Pantry

Good Works, Inc.

The Harry B. Crewson Foundation


We've set a goal to donate $10,000 by August 31st!

Here's how to help us reach our goal:

  • REFER! When you refer someone and they open a checking account, we'll donate $25 to one of the charities chosen by the new member. You'll both get a FREE Athens, OH t-shirt to show that you're a part of the Give and Grow campaign!
  • Open a Visa platinum credit card
  • Get a loan of $10,000 or more
  • Set up direct deposit

OUCU will donate $25 to the charity you choose for each product or service!


You'll also get a FREE Give and Grow t-shirt as a thank you for participating in the Give and Grow program!

OUCU Member wins $1,000 Bill Pay Sweepstakes Grand Prize!

A member for over 20 years, Lucy Behm was the lucky $1,000 grand prize winner during the spring Bill Pay sweepstakes promotion!

All members who utilized our Bill Pay system this spring were automatically entered into the sweepstakes along with members of other credit unions around the country, and we were thrilled to find out that Lucy was the grand prize winner! Lucy paid us a visit here at OUCU and was presented with her winnings, which she then used to take her great-grandchildren on an exciting vacation to Myrtle Beach!

She also wanted to mention to us that she "has not had one problem here" and stated, "I have been very pleased with the service here." Thank you for being one of our great longtime members, Lucy, and congratulations!

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.
