Want to make a difference this summer?


We’re collecting peanut butter and jelly for Athens County Children Services 17th Annual Peanut Butter and Jelly Drive. They hope to serve over 4,000 kids this summer through distribution sites running every Thursday from June 1st until July 31st. Children and families can grab peanut butter, jelly, bread, Snowville products and fresh produce. Here is a list of the distribution sites. 

As a long-time supporter, OUCU was happy to donate $1000 for this project!

Through June 30, we’ll have collection boxes in our lobbies for your donations. We can also accept monetary donations, just let the teller know.

Snider Stroh Jarrett consists of 3 financial advisors – Mark Snider, Dan Stroh and Shane Jarrett – and 3 support staff who have joined the OUCU Investment Services team. The financial advisors will continue to operate out of their home office on Depot Street in Athens.

“We are pleased to announce that we have joined OUCU Financial and have onboarded to the LPL Financial platform,” said Snider, who served as senior financial advisor at Snider Stroh Jarrett. “When we began looking for the best succession plan for our clients and stability for our long?term and best?in?class staff, OUCU Financial was a logical choice. By partnering with OUCU Financial and leveraging the robust LPL Financial platform, we can continue to provide our clients with personalized advice, outstanding service and a broad array of financial investments – the three things on which we have built our reputation over the past 50 years, and which we are planning as a legacy for the next 50 years.”

“We are honored to partner with such an esteemed and talented group of financial advisors as they continue to offer excellent advice to our community,” said Cory Corrigan, CEO of OUCU Financial. “Mark and I worked together tirelessly over the past 18 months to be sure that the cultures aligned, intentions were pure, and most importantly, that clients would benefit from this transition. With OUCU’s 20 years of experience in the Wealth Management business, almost nearly 70 years of shared solid commitment to the communities we serve, and ultimately helping members live their best financial lives, we believe that we can continue to provide clients with the same incredible service but with a stronger foundation that ensures it continues well into the future.”

OUCU Achieves Exceptional Performance Designation

Bauer Financial 5-Star Rating

BauerFinancial, Inc., the nation’s premier bank and credit union rating firm, announced that OUCU, has once again earned its highest (5-Star) rating for financial strength and stability. Earning a 5-Star rating indicates OUCU excels in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, asset quality and much more. Earning and maintaining this top rating for 47 consecutive quarters, means OUCU has done so continuously since August 2008. This achievement has secured an even higher designation for OUCU as an “Exceptional Performance Credit Union”. This title is reserved for institutions that have earned Bauer’s top 5-Star rating for 40 consecutive quarters (ten years) or longer. 

OUCU is the only credit union in the area to be awarded a 5-Star rating.

“Embracing their ‘People Helping People’ core value,” notes Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial, “the nation’s credit unions are well-positioned to help local communities thrive. In fact,” she continued, “credit unions are local small businesses themselves, and their employees are members. Through shared experiences, they know exactly what other members need, and they have the means to help provide it. This has proven a winning combination for OUCU.”
