Credit Unions to Fundraise During ICU Day 2014

This year's theme for International Credit Union (ICU) Day is "Local Service. Global Good." It gives credit unions a chance to make a difference for the charity of their choice. With that in mind, the World Council of Credit Unions is encouraging fundraising this year.

Credit unions in Missouri will be asked to report charitable donations leading up to and throughout ICU Day, which is October 16. The World Council will capture the results and share a global report on credit union fundraising efforts at the community, national and international levels. 
  
How to Get Involved: 

  • Fundraising events with social media coverage;
  • In-branch coin drives;
  • Corporate matching and office fundraising challenges;
  • Credit union interchange fees for all card transactions;
  • Add-on donation options for members to make through debit/card transactions; or
  • Crowdfunding websites.

In the United States, Credit Unions for Kids will hold Shop for Miracles, a one-day fundraising program to support local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Each time members use their credit union-issued credit or debit card on October 16, participating credit unions will donate a pre-determined amount to their local children's hospital.
