What is International Credit Union Day?

International Credit Union Day embodies the essence of the global credit union movement. This day serves as a tribute to the movement's history, a platform to showcase its accomplishments, an opportunity to honor diligent efforts, and a forum for sharing member stories. Since 1948, International Credit Union Day has been observed on the third Thursday of October.

Advia is proud to be part of this global movement!

Beyond our extensive support for numerous community events, sponsorships, and the Advia Foundation Advancing Lives Grants program, our focus has been on addressing four critical pillars that impact the well-being of real people: housing insecurity, transportation insecurity, food insecurity, and financial wellness.

Our commitment to active community engagement shines brightly through our Advancing Community Ties in our Neighborhoods (ACTION) hours initiative. Under this program, our team participates in volunteer activities, generously dedicating their time and expertise for the greater good.

Let's celebrate some of the milestones that reflect our shared commitment:

  • Together, we have supported more than 175 Community Events and Sponsorships, making our communities stronger and more vibrant.
  • We're proud to have granted $30,000 in Youth Scholarships investing in the educational future of our youth and $10,00 for the Cheryl A. DeBoer Soar Higher Awards, recognizing outstanding achievements for aviation students at Western Michigan University.
  • A total of $78,500 has been dedicated to Advancing Lives Grants, further enhancing the lives of those in our communities who need it most.
  • Our team has volunteered over 4,000 hours in our neighborhoods!

At Advia Credit Union, we are not just a financial institution - we are a community of caring individuals working together to create positive change.

Plus, during this week only, we'll match any deposit for new members at 10%, up to $10!1
