We all know this year continues to present unparalleled challenges for communities around the world.  Yet credit unions stay true to their cooperative principles, stepping up to help during this time of economic uncertainty.

Hope is a global resource that everyone has a right to feel and experience. This year's ICU Day theme “Inspiring hope for a global community” reflects how credit unions contribute to a brighter future by providing financial empowerment to people all over the world through financial services, education, and support.
