ICU Day 2021 Building Financial Health for a Brighter Tomorrow

PrimeWay Celebrates International Credit Union Day

Every October, PrimeWay joins credit unions from around the world to celebrate International Credit Union® (ICU) day. It’s the day which recognizes the credit union movement’s achievements and efforts to help their members.

This year’s celebration will be on October 21, 2021, and the theme is “Building Financial Health for a Brighter Tomorrow™.” Financial well-being is a key component to a happy life. Thinking about the future becomes less scary when you know how to manage your money. With some solid financial know-how, you become more abled to meet your current financial obligations, prepare for emergencies, or plan for your future.

Credit unions are committed to supporting their members by providing financial products, services, and education that will help them achieve these goals. Financial wellness is a key reason why credit unions were created. They began in the mid-1800s in Europe to help farmers and laborers who were unable to get loans from banks and other money lenders. They pooled their own money and began lending to each other instead. They understood that when they helped each other to buy a plot of land, provide the seed money to start small business, or simply help a member get through a financial hardship, the whole community would thrive.

Credit unions believe every person should have the tools to create their brighter tomorrow. They are committed to supporting communities that have been underserved by other financial institutions and are the most vulnerable to economic hardships.

That’s why you’ll find more credit unions than banks in middle, moderate, and low-income communities.

You need the right financial tools to build a brighter future. Credit unions believe every member deserves fair and equitable access to these tools, no matter where they are on their journey to achieve financial well-being.

Please join us to celebrate International Credit Union Day on Oct. 21, 2021 and see how we can help you build a brighter tomorrow.
