On Oct. 9, 2023, the Michigan Credit Union League, in collaboration with the Michigan Credit Union Foundation, will be hosting our second annual CU Kind Day. This nationwide day of kindness gives credit unions the opportunity to showcase the credit union difference by donating, volunteering or simply showcasing what they have done throughout the year.
Giving back to our members, communities and beyond is part of what makes us different. This annual day of kindness is our chance to show communities throughout Michigan how much credit unions care!
Below are resources to get those creative juices flowing for CU Kind Day. This is your credit union’s opportunity to get creative and do what feels right for you and your community. If your credit union has been donating and volunteering throughout the year or have your own branded day on Oct. 9, that’s great! Use this day to brag about yourself by posting your efforts on social media, using the hashtag #CUKind.
GOALS IN A NUTSHELL:
Spreading Kindness ♥ Creating Awareness ♥ Impacting Communities
These resources are not just for use on CU Kind Day. We hope this collection will help you year-round, because our kind work is never done! Order a CU Kind Day t-shirt benefiting Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Our t-shirt shop closes on September 12th. Order Now!

Small-asset-size credit unions can apply to receive a MCUF grant here. Deadline to apply is Aug. 4, 2023.
History of CU Kind Day
On Oct. 10, 2022, credit unions across the country took part in CU Kind Day, an annual tradition showcasing the credit union difference through donations and volunteering. Giving back to members, communities and beyond is part of what makes credit unions different, and this annual day of kindness is Michigan’s chance to show communities throughout the state how much credit unions care.
CU Kind Day was founded by the Minnesota Credit Union Network under the name CU Forward. Since then, the Illinois Credit Union League, CrossState Credit Union Association, Montana's Credit Unions, and the Wisconsin Credit Union League have taken part in their own day of kindness under the title CU Kind Day. On Oct. 10, 2022, credit unions across Michigan took part in CU Kind Day, mobilizing more than 3,500 volunteers and provided nearly $150,000 in goods and donations — all of which positively impacted approximately 24,000 people.
