On February 6, 1940 nine employees of Owens-Illinois Glass Co. at Clarion, acting as incorporators, signed the organization certificate of the Clarion Onized Federal Credit Union. The certificate was duly notarized and sent to The Farm Credit Administration in Washington, D.C. The approval was granted on February 20, 1940 and charter number 3655 was assigned. On February 21, 1940 an interested group of members assembled in the Ross Memorial Library to organize the Credit Union. From this small group, a credit union to serve the needs of the Owens Illinois employees was formed. Since 1972 the credit union has continued to add payroll entities extending our membership far beyond Owens-Illinois employees. In 1985, a merger with Gateway Knox FCU in Marienville was approved by the National Credit Union Administration. This merger allowed the credit union to continue operations at the Clarion office.
The Credit Union has expanded its field of membership and you are eligible to join if you live, work, worship, attend school or regularly do business in Clarion, Jefferson, Forest, Venango, Butler, Armstrong, Mercer, Crawford, Warren, McKean, Elk, Indiana or Clearfield counties in Pennsylvania. The Credit Union offers a wide variety of financial products including saving accounts, checking accounts, single and joint accounts, debit cards, low interest rate auto loans and home equity products, IRAs, term certificates, Christmas and vacation club accounts. A $5 deposit is required to open your account. The $5 remains in your account until you wish to close it permanently.
