International Credit Union Day-October 15, 2020
International Credit Union Week-October 12-17, 2020
Our International Credit Union Week Celebration
Each year we come together to celebrate International Credit Union Week (ICU Week) to raise awareness about what it means for members around the world to have a credit union as their financial partner. This year’s global health crisis has been trying for many communities around the world, but credit unions stayed true to their cooperative principles and stepped up during this time of economic uncertainty. Hope is a global resource that everyone has a right to feel and experience. This year’s ICU Week theme “Inspiring hope for a global community” reflects how credit unions contribute to a brighter future by providing financial empowerment to people all over the world through financial services, education and support.
What makes this week a little extra special, is that Fox is celebrating its 83rd anniversary, right on October 15; International Credit Union Day. Our history video is available for you to enjoy…to see where it all began!
Our International Credit Union Week needs to look different than in the past; everything will be online. We will not be having tables in our lobbies this year, but please feel free to check out the information below to learn about the financial resources we’re highlighting. We have a coloring page for kids, webinar information, a photo contest, and videos to enjoy.
