CUA stands for Credit Union Australia and it was founded in 1946 by Jack Harvey, as a merger between three small Queensland-based credit unions.
Today it is Australia’s largest customer-owned financial institution, and their profits come back to their customers as better rates and lower fees. According to their website at the time of writing, a new member joins CUA every 10 minutes, every working day.
Some of CUA’s earliest innovations included a field office operating out of a caravan to serve their regional customers in the 1960s to 1970s. CUA is now acclaimed as an employer of choice when it comes to gender equality, winning the WGEA award in 2011, 2014, and 2015.
CUA supports the Australian community in particular through children and schools. CUA Community Care gave $75,000 in grants in 2015 to the school projects across Australia that receive the most votes. They also regularly give $5,000 grants to reward schools for fighting childhood obesity with School Fun Runs and health eating initiatives. They also have been sponsoring SIDS and Kids (SNK) since 2014.
They also sponsor innovation for the community. CUA sponsors entrepreneurs through the annual River City Labs start-up mentoring and networking program. And the CUA Hackathon is another major innovation event:
Disaster relief packages were made available to customers affected by Cyclones Marcia and Lam. And every year, natural disasters or not, employees receive one day of leave per year to volunteer for the charity or cause they care about.
CUA also supports the environment through the Credit Union Foundation Australia (CUFA). This foundation develops grassroots-to-government solutions for credit unions to improve sustainability and relieve poverty in their region.
