FORUM Credit Union is one of 5,548 credit unions in the United States, and one of the many traits FORUM shares with other credit unions is their desire to give back to the communities they serve. If you like supporting local businesses that support their community, credit unions are a great option for your financial needs. We do this in a variety of ways and this column is an opportunity to shine a light on three fun ways we carry out some of our community endeavors.
International Credit Union Day is Thursday, October 19th. And, yes, while it does seem like there is a day designated for everything nowadays, this day allows us to reflect upon the credit union movement’s history and share member experiences
FORUM is dedicated to embodying the cooperative credit union spirit in all we do. That’s why we created the FORUM Credit Union Foundation. The Foundation is committed to strengthening the communities we serve through youth educational opportunities. This includes both educator grants and collegiate scholarships available to FORUM members.
