International Credit Union Day

Local Service. Global Reach.  

On October 17, 2019, we will join with 56,000 credit unions around the world in celebration of International Credit Union (ICU) Day®.We will have FREE treats in the lobby, and you can enter to win a prize – a McMenamins passport and $100 McMenamins gift card. From us – to you!*

There are 200+ million credit union members around the world—more than 100 million in the U.S. alone—and we join them in celebration of the not-for-profit cooperative spirit that all credit unions share.

This cooperative spirit has led to life-changing opportunities for people all over the world who’ve wanted to start a small business, own a home or continue their education but were denied access to other financial institutions. In many parts of the world, people’s first taste of democracy is through their credit union, where “one member, one vote” is the governing structure.

At its most basic level, a credit union is people pooling their money to provide each other with affordable loans—it is literally people helping people. This is why USAgencies Credit Union celebrates ICU Day. Because credit unions empower people, wherever they are in the world or life, to take control of their financial future.

Please stop by and celebrate with us here at USACU, a movement that concerns itself with the financial success of all people.


Stop by our branch on the corner of 1st and Taylor on the 17th! We will have FREE treats in the lobby, and you can enter to win a prize – a McMenamins passport and $100 McMenamins gift card. From us – to you! You can also enter by commenting on our daily ICU Trivia Posts on our Facebook between 10/14 – 10/17! We cannot wait to see you, and to celebrate TOGETHER!

It is time for the KGW Great Toy Drive!

Benefiting local kids

USAgencies is excited to once again participate in the KGW Great Toy Drive. For more than 30 years, the KGW Great Toy Drive has provided hundreds of thousands of toys to families in Oregon and Southwest Washington.

We invite our members, friends and neighbors to stop by and donate a toy (or toys!) for local families in need. Donate at USAgencies Credit Union by Dec. 14th and we’ll match your donation, toy for toy!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Buy a new, unwrapped toy.
  2. Drop your toy at USAgencies (95 SW Taylor Street, Portland, OR) by Dec. 14th.

Great Toy Drive Brings Smiles for the Holidays

Over the past several weeks, USAgencies Credit Union has been collecting toys for the KGW Great Toy Drive, a fundraiser that benefits local children in need. As we’ve done in years past, USACU once again matched all donations made – toy for toy. Staff and members gave generously, and each week we watched the piles of toys grow larger and larger!

On December 14th, staff gathered in the lobby to collect the toys, and drop them at the KGW Studios. Because of to the generosity we saw this holiday season, the credit union was able to deliver over 200 toys this year! There was a major increase in donations from the previous year, making it a success for all involved.

USAgencies Credit Union would like to thank those who took the time to purchase and drop off toys. Your donations helped bring more smiles to more local children in need. We couldn’t have done it without all of you!
