Participate in the Statewide Credit Union Day of Kindness: Oct. 9

CU Forward Day, formerly Plus It Forward, is a statewide day of Minnesota’s credit unions spreading kindness in the communities they serve. The day is held annually on Columbus Day, a federal holiday on the second Monday of October.


All Minnesota credit unions are invited to participate in CU Forward Day by selecting a giveback opportunity that means the most to their staff and community. MnCUN will gather details from all credit unions participating in the day, create a collective impact report, and share it with the media, legislators, and opinion leaders statewide.


In the past, credit union staff have spent the day delivery gift baskets to local law enforcement, volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, hosting a community shred day, volunteering for park cleanup, helping at a local food shelf, and much more. See below for additional ideas.


For more information, view the CU Forward Day webpage. Credit unions interested in participating in 2017 should contact MnCUN Director of Communications Andrea Molnau or Communications Specialist Laura Whittet.
