The credit union movement is steeped in a rich history of collaboration across divides. For nearly two centuries, financial cooperatives have encouraged people of every race, gender and belief to come together and give their all towards the betterment of their communities. It’s about people helping people. That’s why credit unions always offer a platinum lining.
International Credit Union (ICU) Day® has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948. On October 18, we’re celebrating International Credit Union Day’s platinum anniversary, a chance to look back after 70 years and be thankful for the lives and communities that have been improved by the unique principles and actions of our movement.
At Fox Communities Credit Union, we plan to celebrate all week long! The 2018 International Credit Union (ICU) Day® theme — “Find Your Platinum Lining” illustrates how credit unions serve as catalysts to make a difference to our members, communities and the world. Join us all week long for treats, informational handouts and even a drawing for a chance to win a $100 VISA gift card as we encourage you to “Find Your Platinum Lining”. And on October 18, 2018, join more than 217 million credit union members worldwide, in this celebration and achievements of our movement, for National Credit Union Day!
