The paycheck you bring home every month means you can feed your family, pay your bills and save for the future.
But what you may not know is that your day-to-day routine is making a positive impact beyond your own home.
When you choose OCCU to invest in yourself, you’re investing in others as well. Your investment propels you toward your money goals and helps others to take flight as well.
Share your force-for-good story with us
So, you see, the story doesn’t start with us or your membership.
It starts with you.
Beyond the walls of the credit union, you are out in the world, a force for positive change. From the work you do, the businesses you support, the nonprofits you promote — it all creates momentum toward a healthy, thriving community. And that deserves to be celebrated.
Tell us how …
- You are a force for good.
- A member of our team was a force for good.
- Our OCCU community together was a force for good.
Let’s keep the story going.
You’re a part of the credit union difference.
Here are some force-for-good stories shared by our members and team:
You are a part of the credit union. A person helping people. Your membership makes an impact that ripples throughout the community, enriching lives as it goes. Share your story and help inspire others to be a force for good.
"Our members are a force for good because they show up for one another. Our team is floored by the big hearts and generosity of our community. We see this in interactions, donations to the OCCU Foundation, support of local small businesses and nonprofits, volunteering and more. Our members allow us to grow together and support the credit union philosophy of ‘people helping people.'"

I love finding connections between my path / journey and theirs. It really brings home the idea that we are community based and helping one another!"

"I love that our members are compassionate. We have a new team, a new branch, in a new community. We have been embraced by the Keizer community from day one. We have been met with patience and gratitude for being here. So, for that — thank you!"
