Share your impact & make an impact by Inspiring Hope for a Global Community on ICU Day!

MADISON, WI (September 3, 2020) — In celebration of International Credit Union Day on Thursday, October 15, the Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions (WF) and the National Credit Union Foundation (the Foundation) are spearheading an initiative for credit unions to share their impact and make an impact through giving.

Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, credit unions around the globe have continued to serve members and communities in innovative ways that continue to showcase the credit union difference. With the theme of ICU Day 2020 being Inspiring Hope for a Global Community, WF and the Foundation are collaborating on a joint fundraising initiative to support credit unions great work while also encouraging support for the global and national foundation.

We are reaching out to organizations in the movement to post a short video (approximately 30-60 seconds) sharing how you’ve advanced the lives of members, employees or communities during the economic uncertainty wrought by the coronavirus pandemic. Our hope is that by sharing the impact you are making, you will also encourage others to make an impact through philanthropic giving here (US and International) or by texting “ICUDAY20” to 44-321 (US only).

How to get involved:

  1. Simply record a video on your smartphone with staff, members or both highlighting some of the ways you’ve inspired hope for your local community during the pandemic. Then, post it on any of the following social media platforms on Thursday, October 15.
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn
  • Instagram

We ask that you include the hashtag #ICUDAY and #CUDifference in your post so we can all share examples of how credit unions helping their local communities through this crisis is inspiring hope for a global community.

  1. Consider a monetary donation that will be split by the Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions and the National Credit Union Foundation to continue our critical work in supporting the mission of credit unions globally and nationally. If you cannot contribute, sharing the opportunity with others would be greatly appreciated.
