Flip Flop to Nigeria Kick Off Party

Austin FCU is proud to host the 2015 Flip Flop to Nigeria Kick Off Party! The party will be here in Austin FCU’s lobby on June 13th from 10am to 1pm. This event is open to the public - the more the merrier!

Flip Flop to Nigeria was started by our member, Spruce Dickerson with a Mission of reaching the peoples of Nigeria in the poorest of poor villages, and children in orphanages with Hope, Love and Encouragement. With a simple donation of a $1.00 pair of flip flops, YOU can help prevent infection and disease and give encouragement, hope and love to someone clear across the world.

If you have any questions about Flip Flop to Nigeria or the kick off party, visit the campaign’s FB page at Facebook.com/FLIPFLIPtoNigeria.

Our donation barrel will be in the lobby from June 1 – August 31st if you would like to donate a pair of flip flops to the cause. The tellers can also accept cash donations.


New Saturday Hours!

Beginning June 6 with our Shred/E-Waste Recycling Day, Austin FCU's lobby will be open from 10am to 2pm on the 1st Saturday of Each Month!

We understand that many of our members lead busy lives, so sometimes making it into the branch Monday through Friday can be a challenge, so we are adding the 1st Saturday of each month from 10am to 2pm to our regular, full-service lobby business hours*! Our Drive Thru will remain open 9am to 2pm EVERY Saturday.

The first couple of Saturdays will be very exciting as we're hosting our Shred/E-Waste Recycling Day June 6th and our Back to School Day August 1st!

*Since Independence Day falls on Saturday this year, we will NOT be open on July 4th but we will remain open on July 3rd for normal hours (9am to 5pm in the Lobby, 7am to 6pm in the Drive Thru).


2015 Membership Survey Results

The results are in! Thank you to the nearly 200 members who completed our 2015 Membership Survey in our lobby from March 25th to April 26th. We were very excited to get feedback from our members that can help us be the best credit union we can be for everyone!
