UFCU is a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative that serves the Austin community and beyond. In this article, I will share with you some of the reasons why UFCU is a special place to explore and how you can contact them for more information.

History

UFCU was founded in 1936 by a group of University of Texas professors who wanted to create a financial institution that would serve the needs of the university community. They started with only $65 in assets and 40 members. Since then, UFCU has become one of the largest credit unions in Texas, with over $3 billion in assets and more than 300,000 members.
