On Oct. 15 credit unions worldwide will be celebrating the 72nd International Credit Union Day (ICU Day) with the theme of “Inspiring Hope for a Global Community”. Celebrated for the first time in 1948, this annual event raises global awareness for the credit union movement through outreach, volunteering, fundraising and other ICU Day-themed activities. Credit unions bring financial inclusion and a promising future to people all over the world, and ICU Day is a chance to spotlight and celebrate these achievements.
By sticking to their ‘people-helping-people’ roots, credit unions worldwide have been a source of hope for their members and community throughout the pandemic. International Credit Union Day gives credit unions a chance to come closer together with other credit unions and their members while bringing global recognition to credit unions for their contributions as financial first responders during the pandemic.
There are many untold stories about credit unions doing the right thing during these trying times. Some are providing assistance directly related to financial services, demonstrating ingenuity to evolve products and services that meet unique member needs during this crisis. Other examples go way beyond business as usual and reveal the deep-rooted commitment that credit unions have to the well-being of their communities.

It’s easy to see why this year’s selected ICU Day theme is ‘Inspiring hope for a global community.’ These uplifting stories deserve to be shared to remind people that credit unions are there for them during and after the pandemic — to inspire hope.
