OAS FCU was born as a joint effort by people from all over the Americas with unique needs that banks were unable to meet. Since then, we have extended our services to various organizations whose members encounter similar challenges.
We started in 1962 serving the employees of the Organization of American States (OAS). Over the years, we have grown to serve more than 6,500 members worldwide, and now hold over $218 million in assets. We have expanded our field of membership and now fulfill the financial needs of employees and members of more than 25 organizations, including the National Geographic Society, after a merge with their Credit Union in August 1, 2018. Our members consist mainly of professionals living or working in or outside the U.S. who travel frequently internationally.
After all these years, we still believe in our original goals: the financial well-being of our members, and a commitment to the strong principles and values that drive us. We are determined to continue providing the highest quality financial services worldwide.
OAS FCU is the subject of a study published by St. Mary’s University in Halifax, Canada.
We’re proud to share with you the case study published by the International Center for Cooperative Management) at St. Mary’s University, a center dedicated to applied research and knowledge dissemination, focused on co-operatives, credit unions, and mutuals. We want to share this great achievement with you and give a special recognition to our volunteers whose hard work and dedication contribute to the success of our Credit Union.
