MSDFCU Local Service. Global Reach. 

On October 17, 2019, Merck Sharp and Dohme Federal Credit Union will join with 56,000 credit unions around the world in celebration of International Credit Union (ICU) Day®. Stop by a branch for treats and refreshments, a coloring activity sheet for kids, as well as a free calendar giveaway!

There are 200+ million credit union members around the world—more than 100 million in the U.S. alone—and MSDFCU joins them in celebration of the not-for-profit cooperative spirit that all credit unions share. 

This cooperative spirit has led to life-changing opportunities for people all over the world who’ve wanted to start a small business, own a home, or continue their education but was denied access to other financial institutions. In many parts of the world, people’s first taste of democracy is through their credit union, where “one member, one vote” is the governing structure.

At its most basic level, a credit union is people pooling their money to provide each other with affordable loans—it is literally people helping people. This is why MSDFCU celebrates ICU Day because credit unions empower people, wherever they are in the world or life, to take control of their financial future.

We encourage you to stop by any one of our branches and celebrate with MSDFCU, a movement that concerns itself with the financial success of all people.
