Each year, we join our clients in celebrating International Credit Union Day. We’re grateful for their business and for the many ways they contribute to the welfare of our communities.
This year’s theme of Inspiring Hope for a Global Community beautifully captures the spirit of the credit union industry, most notably during this global pandemic. With so many unknowns touching different aspects of our lives, credit unions offer financial stability and a place where members are known. This is the sort of positivity that can spark a brighter future.
Here are just a few ways our Credit Union clients are making a difference in their communities.
