Formed in 1955 on the principal of “people helping people,” TDECU continues to show passion for service and value to financially underserved communities. The idea for TDECU came from a group of Dow employees came together to loan their friend $35 to purchase a new refrigerator. Over the past 60 years that $35 loan has turned into over $3 billion in loans. They are now the largest credit union in Houston and the fourth largest in the state of Texas.
TDECU prides themselves in the lives they have improved and the communities they have helped. In 2004 they developed new service standards that outlined their dedication to go beyond the call of duty to serve their members. Throughout the financial crisis in 2008, they remained committed to providing free checking and low or no-fee product offerings. This clearly demonstrates TDECU’s loyalty to its members no matter what the financial climate.
Their dedication to the local areas they serve goes beyond the work they do in their offices. Each TDECU employee is given twenty-four paid hours per year to give back to the community. TDECU’s presence is seen and felt in each local area. Their volunteer efforts, donations, and charitable partnerships are examples of the lengths TDECU goes to, to ensure they are truly making a difference. So far, in 2017, TDECU has partnered with University of Houston Career Services and Rebuilding Houston to provide free renovations for elderly low-income, disabled, and veteran homeowners. Also, as a part of TDECU’s company-wide Discover Day of service, over 750 employees volunteered at local Boys & Girls Clubs in Texas.
We are proud to be partnered with TDECU, a company that is deeply committed to making a difference, through the Texas Sponsor A Highway® program.
