Since 1991, St. Edward’s University and University Federal Credit Union (UFCU) have been partners in education. UFCU has provided generous gifts to fund scholarships, and sponsor events, athletic programs and capital priorities such as the John Brooks Williams Natural Sciences Center. In addition to providing banking and financial services, UFCU provides internships for St. Edward’s University students interested in careers in business and/or finance, and consumer education in personal finance matters for all members of the St. Edward’s community. The affinity credit card program is an extension of our already-established mutually beneficial relationship that enables UFCU to further support university initiatives, with every account opened and every purchase that is made with the card.
