LOS ANGELES, CA (December 26, 2018) — University Credit Union (UCU) is proud to announce its new partnership with the Child Life Program in conjunction with UCLAs Mattel Children’s Hospital. UCU has been a proud supporter of the Mattel Children’s Hospital for over a decade with the annual Toy & Book Drive and is humbled to increase their relationship with the institution.


UCU formed a formal agreement with the UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital earlier this year to benefit UCLA to advance its not‐for‐profit mission of education, research and service. This new joint venture will help promote the good works for the Chase Child Life Program, raise awareness and funds to support their outreach as well as increasing the field of membership for UCU.


“A significant part of our core values is to advocate, educate and innovate.” said Dr. David Tuyo, II, UCU’s Chief Executive Officer and President. “UCU is devoted to improving the lives of our members and the University communities we serve through charitable donations and outreach. We are about building relationships with students, employees, faculty, staff and alumni and have been serving the University community since 1951.”

Along with an impressive donation of new books and toys collected by the members and employees of UCU for the children being attended to at the hospital, UCU presented a $5,000 contribution to the Child Life Program to kickoff the partnership.


This is just another recent collaboration that University Credit Union has been working on this year to increase its footprint within the Western United States and strengthen its commitment to the prestigious Universities it serves.
