The credit union movement is steeped in a rich history of collaboration across divides. For nearly two centuries, financial cooperatives have encouraged people of every race, gender and belief to come together and give their all towards the betterment of their communities. It's about people helping people. That's why credit unions always offer a platinum lining.

This year, we're celebrating International Credit Union Day's platinum anniversary, a chance to look back after 70 years and be thankful for the lives and communities that have been improved by the unique principles and actions of our movement.

Stop into your local RIFCU branch on October 18th for some fun, refreshments and learn more on how your credit unions are different from banks!

The Executive Management Team at RIFCU feels providing disaster relief to credit union people (staff and members) is one thing that makes us who we are. For many years we have partnered with the National Credit Union Foundation and CuAid to raise funds for victims of hurricane and national disasters within the credit union community. As we launch awareness of this cause, the success is only viable if we continue to spread the word.

To donate, please visit CUAID.coop or click here to be directed to the CUAID's General donation page.
