OnPoint is excited to celebrate International Credit Union Day (ICU Day) on October 18, 2018, which will mark the 70th anniversary of ICU Day. This year’s theme is “Find Your Platinum Lining.” It combines the traditional gift of platinum for 70th anniversaries with a play on the saying “every cloud has a silver lining.”

Since 1948, International Credit Union Day has been celebrated annually on the third Thursday of October. The day allows all of us the opportunity to reflect upon the credit union history and promote awareness of and support for the credit union difference.

For OnPoint, and many other financial cooperatives, this day is a time to share and celebrate our members and our mission to provide financial support and guidance. Credit unions are recognized as a force of positive economic and social change and have provided significant value in both developed and emerging nations worldwide. Credit unions are also an integral part of the communities they serve, opening the doors to people of all economic levels, helping members build credit and supporting local programs integral to the community.

OnPoint will be celebrating during the month of October and we encourage our members to participate in our Credit Union for Kids coin drive. Through October 31, canisters will be placed at teller windows at all OnPoint branches to collect funds in support of Credit Union for Kids.  

In addition to the coin drive, OnPoint will be making a $5,000 donation to OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, our local Children’s Miracle Network hospital, on behalf of our debit and credit cardholders.

Join us in our branches on October 18 to enjoy a cookie and celebrate ICU Day.

OnPoint continues the traditions and philosophies of credit unions by focusing on efforts that improve our local communities. OnPoint’s commitment to serving the community stretches beyond our business walls and includes ongoing corporate partnerships, charitable giving directed by an employee-managed committee, and employee volunteerism.

We look forward to celebrating International Credit Union Day with you this year!
