A program established by the Foundation in 2008, this prestigious honor is given to credit union professionals and volunteers to allow credit unions and organizations to make contributions in honor of or in memory of a significant individual who has been instrumental in their success. Contributions are typically made at a special time of significance to acknowledge their dedication and impact on the organization.
The 2016 Credit Union Builder honorees include:
In total, 42 individuals have been designated as Credit Union Builders over the past eight years. The names of the recipients and the contributing credit unions are permanently displayed in the Minnesota Credit Union Network’s lobby as a tribute to those who have dedicated time and energy to building the credit union movement.
Donors are also listed in the Foundation's annual report and on the donor page online. The honorees (or their families, in the case of a memoriam contribution) also receive recognition from the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation.
A minimum $1,000 contribution is required for the Credit Union Builder Award. Contributions can be made online. For more information, contact Minnesota Credit Union Foundation Executive Director Lyndsay Miller by email or by phone at 651-288-5517.
