Credit Unions are about People Helping People…

ICU_Day_2015_poster_website (1)Credit unions were created by regular people to help regular people. This is why we celebrate International Credit Union Day. So, on Thursday October 15th, Emerald Empire FCU will be joining in the International Celebration.   Since 1948, on the third Thursday of every October, credit unions have celebrated a simple but radical idea—that by working together, people can improve their financial well-being. “People helping people,” this year’s ICU Day theme, is the foundational philosophy of the credit union movement, going back to the very beginning.cu 1

At its most basic level, a credit union is people pooling their money to provide each other with affordable loans—a credit union is literally people helping people. This is why we celebrate ICU Day at Emerald Empire FCU. This simple idea empowers people, wherever they are in the world or life, to take control of their own financial future.

We invite you to come celebrate with us on Thursday October 15th. We will be serving refreshments throughout the day.
