Although credit union giveback may look different this year, please save the date for CU Forward Day 2020 on Monday, October 12 and plan to join us in spreading kindness as a celebration of our people-helping-people industry. Stay tuned for updates, event details and sign-up instructions to come in July!
CU Forward is a state-wide initiative through the Minnesota Credit Union Network of credit unions coming together to do one simple thing – spread kindness. On CU Forward Day, credit union employees, members and partners join one another to volunteer with local organizations, give back to our communities, commit random acts of kindness and generally just say “thank you” to the people who deserve it most. It’s really at the heart of what credit unions represent.
Last year, a total of 58 credit unions and organizations dedicated over 20,000 hours of service to the community as a collective whole with 4,000+ volunteers. The concept spread outside of Minnesota across our nation, as well, with the Illinois Credit Union League launching CU Kind Day, a credit union driven kindness day, and Mississippi credit unions piloting a giveback day through their young professional’s group, LEAD.
The Pulse is MnCUN's newsletter that keeps credit union professionals and board members updated on current news and information.
