FCCU Announces Exclusive Partnership with University of North Dakota Athletics


We're excited to announce our exclusive partnership with University of North Dakota (UND) Athletics. The partnership was announced Thursday, August 17th with more than 20 Ralph Engelstad and UND staff and coaches in attendance to celebrate this one-of-a-kind partnership. 

"The First Community Credit Union and University of North Dakota Athletics (UND) partnership is a historic moment for all involved," said Derek Holt, Grand Forks Market President of First Community Credit Union. He goes on to say, "As a North Dakota based organization that focuses on the financial success of businesses, farmers and individuals in the region, FCCU couldn't be more proud to support our local UND student athletes, coaches and staff through this opportunity."

"What a fantastic day for both UND Athletics and Fighting Hawks Sports Partnerships to announce this tremendous partnership with FCCU," said UND Director of Athletics Bill Chaves. "FCCU's mission and vision certainly aligns with ours and we want to thank Derek and his team for their leadership during this process."

The partnership is the first of its kind with FCCU and UND, providing new opportunities for student athletes, UND fans and the community. FCCU will begin offering UND Athletics themed credit and debit cards featuring the Fighting Hawks logo in the coming months as part of this exclusive partnership, as well as co-branded UND checks and online banking. 

"This aligns well with our core values of community, integrity, passion and growth. It is an exciting time for our employees, members and communities that we serve. Thank you to everyone involved at UND for collaborating with FCCU on this exclusive partnership. We are honored to be the Proud Financial Partner of UND Athletics," concludes Holt.
