  • volunteering opportunities,
  • fundrasing events, and
  • participating in community service projects.

Minnesota’s Credit Union Spread Kindness, Volunteer on CU Forward Day


In 2013, Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union hosted their first organization-wide Plus It Forward Day.

Initially focused on Affinity Plus’ employees dedicating eight hours to volunteerism, the event has grown substantially – the 2016 Plus It Forward event included 25 participating credit unions resulting in more than 1,200 employees and members dedicating over 7,300 total volunteer hours to scatter kindness in their communities.

In a response to the growing cooperative nature of the event, the Minnesota Credit Union Network will now coordinate credit union participation, tracking and media efforts going forward under the umbrella name CU Forward Day.
