Four Minn. Credit Unions Receive National Recognition for Community Involvement, Financial Education Efforts
The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) recently announced that four Minnesota credit unions received national recognition in 2017 through the Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Awards and Desjardins Financial Education Awards programs. These awards recognize credit union excellence in community service and financial literacy initiatives.
Award entries from Financial One Credit Union (Columbia Heights), SPIRE Credit Union (Falcon Heights), North Star Credit Union (Cook), and United Educators Credit Union (Apple Valley) received recognition for placing in the national awards program.
Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Community Service Award
The Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Community Service Award was created in 1987 and recognizes credit unions for the activities they coordinate that benefit the community or a specific charity. This award promotes social responsibility among credit unions by formally recognizing their achievements outside the credit union.
Desjardins Financial Education Award
The Desjardins Youth and Adult Financial Education Awards formally recognize the leadership of individual credit unions in their efforts to educate youth and adults in financial literacy.
Award-winning entries will be on display at CUNA’s 2018 Governmental Affairs Conference, February 25 through March 1 in Washington, D.C., and award winners will be honored during a CUNA Awards Recognition Reception on Wednesday, February 28.
