Celebrating Over 60 Years

How We Started

On May 1, 1954, a group of 40 University of Virginia Hospital administrators and staff held their first meeting to organize what would become the University of Virginia Community Credit Union. They believed that by pooling their resources, each member of the credit union could have the chance at a better future.

The driving force behind the creation of the credit union was Daniel D. Colcock, the hospital's administrative accountant. He helped the credit union get off to a good start. By the close of business on December 31, 1954 the credit union had attracted 307 members and had assets totaling $10,269.49.


We've grown dramatically since 1954. At every step of the way, the credit union continues to do our part—just as its founders envisioned—to help our members achieve their financial goals—whether it was owning a home, sending their children to college, or enjoying a secure retirement.

We attribute four items to continued success over the years:

  • Exclusive focus on our local communities
  • Dedication to community service with an emphasis of improving financial literacy
  • Emphasis on innovation and technology
  • Commitment to offering ever more powerful and convenient financial products and services

Be Part of Something

Together, our members and staff have heeded our call to Be Part of Something—and in the process they have built something very special – a local, community-oriented, innovative credit union committed to finding new products and services for members.

Join us today and be a part of the continued excellence and focus what matters most to our members.
