Thursday, October 20th is International Credit Union Day – a day we celebrate the spirit of the global credit union movement. Today we reflect upon the credit union movement’s history, promote its achievements, recognize hard work, and share member experiences. International Credit Union (ICU) Day® has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948.
This year, we will gather as a global movement under the theme “Empower Your Financial Future with a Credit Union™.”
133 million* Americans already benefit from a credit union
99% of Americans* are eligible to become members
5K+ credit unions* to join across the United States

Why do millions trust us?
It’s easy to understand why 133 million Americans are a member of one of 5,000 credit unions nationwide.
We’re people helping people.
At a credit union, we pride ourselves on being small enough to know you and your neighbors, but big enough to bring the world to your fingertips. We care about who you are, and what you dream of.
We’re invested in our neighbors.
Every year, credit unions across the country provide funds, support, and goods to local communities and charities. Every credit union is different in the organizations and support we provide, but all credit unions are committed to the communities we serve.
We care about your financial well-being.
Financial well-being is critical for people to build a new normal. From the biggest cities to the smallest towns, credit unions put our members ahead of the bottom line to promote financial well-being and advance the communities we serve.
