Celebrating the Spirit of the Credit Union Movement
On Thursday, October 21, 2021, credit unions around the world will commemorate the 73rd anniversary of ICU day. SMCU is proud to be part of the celebration, joining more than 57,000 credit unions serving 274 million members in 105 countries.
This year’s theme—Building Financial Health for a Brighter Tomorrow—reflects the emphasis SMCU has always placed on financial education. We recognize that greater knowledge about money management means better decisions that will last a lifetime. That’s why we dedicate fulltime resources to ensuring that our communities have the financial education they need to light the way to a brighter future.
Help others by using your SMCU debit or credit card on ICU Day
In keeping with this spirit of community service, we are encouraging SMCU members to use their debit or credit card on ICU Day to help feed the hungry. For every completed transaction made on October 21, 2021, SMCU will donate $0.25 to Second Harvest of Silicon Valley. Simply by using your card, you can help ensure that those in need—from kids to families to seniors—have access to nutritious food.
