Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions launches $750,000 grass-roots fundraising drive to celebrate 75 years of ICU Day

‘Members Helping Members’ campaign will support global credit union growth

Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions (WFCU) has announced a major fundraising drive, calling on credit union employees, members and advocates to help raise $750,000 in 75 days.

WFCU’s Members Helping Members campaign will raise money for innovative development programs that support a vibrant and growing global credit union movement. The fundraising drive will conclude on the 75th annual International Credit Union (ICU) Day, on Thursday, October 19, 2023.

“Access to financial services is a basic human right. It is critical to building generational wealth and strengthening communities, yet 1.4 billion people wake up daily without it,” said Mike Reuter, WFCU executive director.

“The Members Helping Members campaign is about leaning into our cooperative principles with a bit of fun, yet competitive philanthropy. Together, we can move the needle on some of the significant challenges the global credit union system and its members face.”
