OCTOBER 17, 2019
Credit Unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives, owned by the people who save and borrow there. Not for profit, not for charity, but for service.
Everything credit unions do serves the needs of members on a local scale. Credit unions impact local communities across the globe by bringing financial empowerment to their community, which inspires other credit unions to enhance their service. International Credit Union Day (ICU Day) is an opportunity to raise worldwide awareness about the movement.
ICU Day celebrates the spirit of the global credit union movement. The day is recognized to reflect upon the credit union movement’s history, promote its achievements, recognize the hard work and share member experiences. ICU Day has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948.
ICU Day is brought to you by Credit Union National Association and World Council of Credit Unions.
FLAG Credit Union’s Impact
FLAG Credit Union was founded in 1960 and originally served employees of the Florida Department of Agriculture (FDACS). We’ve expanded our services since then, and offer a wide array of products and services designed to enhance you and your family’s financial life.
FLAG Credit Union frequently raises money for various charities, including an Alzheimer’s fund. Our employees often volunteer as mentors at W.T. Moore Elementary school. We are partnered with Lincoln high school, contributing money and occasionally financial education classes, etc. We send educational newsletters to our Brightstars members between the ages of 3 and 10. We offered relief/aid to those affected during the hurricanes that impact our community.
We at FLAG Credit Union are here for you, and because of you. Thank you to all of our members.
We Build Relationships, not Branches.
