The Illinois Credit Union League (ICUL) announced the selection of ten winning credit unions and one league in the Giving component of the July 29, 2022 #ILoveMyCreditUnion campaign. The #ILoveMyCreditUnion campaign brings the collaborative credit union movement together on one day to share authentic stories and high-energy conversation about why people love their credit union using the common hashtag.
The Giving component for #ILoveMyCreditUnion day gave credit unions an opportunity to share their community engagement strategy to be entered into a raffle to win $1,000 to a charity of their choice. Credit unions submitted the plans on www.ilovemycreditunion.social/giving. All credit union leagues registered to participate in the campaign were also entered into a separate raffle for $15,000 to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in their area. The raffle drawings took place July 22.
“We are so fortunate to work in a collaborative movement based on the philosophy of people helping people,” noted Tom Kane, ICUL & Envisant CEO. “Congratulations to the Association of Vermont Credit Unions and the 10 credit unions that will be sharing $25,000 in contributions from Envisant with the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and local charities. It’s a wonderful way to celebrate the spirit of #ILoveMyCreditUnion Day!”
The Association of Vermont Credit Unions has selected The University of Vermont Children's Hospital to receive the $15,000 donation and the credit union winners of the Giving campaign for #ILoveMyCreditUnion are:
#ILoveMyCreditUnion day on July 29 is supported by over 800 organizations, legislators, and friends of credit unions. The campaign will raise awareness about the incredible work of credit unions and our dedication to community above all else.
