About OCCU

It’s different here.®

Hi, we’re Oregon Community Credit Union. 
OCCU for short. 

We’re a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative located in Oregon and Washington.  



What’s the credit union difference?

People helping people. That’s the credit union philosophy.  
Unlike a traditional bank, our members are stakeholders. We’re guided by a board of directors that our members elect. Our board sets our vision and direction.


We invest in our communities. Our profits are used to support our members and the places we live. Here’s how: 

•    Fewer and reduced fees.
•    Increased savings rates. 
•    Lower loan rates. 
•    Earmarked community funds. 
•    Charitable giving.

It doesn’t just stop with us. By becoming a member of a cooperative, you help other members too. Your deposits become loans to help the financial wellness of other members – people helping people


Our members matter.

Hear our members share what it’s like to be a part of OCCU and the credit union difference. 



Our vision and values guide us. 

Our humble beginnings started with a group of state of Oregon employees pooling cash into a shoe box. We carry on our founders’ vision of a better future for our members and communities.


Enrich Lives. 


We’re dedicated and show up for our members with care.

We support a culture of helpfulness by serving our members and one another.

We’re active in our communities and give our time to support our members and places we live.
